releasing IP address on backup server.

Moon is the primary server.
Venus is the backup.

When moon goes off-line Venus correctly picks up
the shared IP address.

When moon comes backup it regains the ipaddress,
and all requests go to it.  Just like it is supposed

The problem is that the backup server (venus) still
has the shared IP address listed in the "ifconfig".

I have to restart the heartbeat on Venus in order for
it to clear the address.

Is this the normal way, or is it a bug.
