Then you'd have 100 vs. Infinity. Infinity is obviously more than 100, 
so the resource would stay in place.

When heartbeat has the same score for one resource on several nodes, it 
picks one by some pseudo random mechanism. In a 2 node cluster the 
chances are pretty good it will move then.

Imho, this is by design for your current configuration, not a bug.
