sorry, didn't make it clear, the question shoud read:
Why do you request a node to shoot _itself_ at all?
shouldn't a node always stonith another node?
That's what the name (shoot THE OTHER node ...)

hm, that is a one-node-cluster? are you saying that
in a two-node cluster it's always one node fencing the other?
Also, this sounds like you don't check the success of the
stonith operation, although I see in the log messages:
info: Succeeded to STONITH the node ha-test-1: optype=1. whodoit: ha-test-2
Are you ignoring the result?
