I have a similair problem, or maybe the same.  I looks like
stonithd can not recover if the connection to the powerswitch
was lost.  It stays in "NOT ACTIVE" state in output of "crm_mon -1".
In my setup there are  two nodes and one powerswitch (the stonith
device). The stonith resources are configured as clones.  The
nodes are connected via a crossover-cable and
with another link to a switch to a network where they can
reach each other (the second hearbeat link) and the powerswitch.
When I pull the network cable of this public link of the active
node, a failover occurs (yeah!), and "crm_mon -1" shows:

Clone Set: fence1
     fence1:apc1:0 (stonith:apcmastersnmp):      NOT ACTIVE
     fence1:apc1:1 (stonith:apcmastersnmp):      ha-test-2

Unfortunately it stays like this even when I connect the
network again.  This is with current CVS, and see attached logs
and cib.xml.
So the stonithd does not seem to be able to recover from
a connection loss.
What would I have to do to manually restart stonithd such
that heartbeat marks the device as "ACTIVE"?
