[Linux-cluster] RHEL6.2 qdisk, luci, 3node last-man-standing question

In a 3 node cluster using a qdisk for a "last man standing"
configuration (one node plus the qdisk can be quorate), the
configuration is typically:

quorum disk = 3 votes
each node = 2 votes
expected votes = 9

So one node plus the qdisk has 5 votes = quorum.

This works fine when configuring using ccs and editing the cluster.conf.

However, in luci if you try to setup the same configuration via luci,
when you go to enable a qdisk, you get the big warning message "Quorum
Disk cannot be used unless each cluster node has exactly 1 vote.".
