You just answered the quirky question :-)

Unfortunately, corosync/dlm don't work for me as expected. When starting 
clvmd -I corosync (with dlm kernel module loaded), creating the dlm 
lockspace "clvmd" fails, with

dlm: no local IP address has been set
dlm: cannot start dlm lowcomms -107

I haven't found any hint what might go wrong on the machine (checked 
already hostname resolves correctly to its ip address via /etc/hosts; 
corosync uses that network too).
