sorry, I was ambiguous. On the backup director, when it's 
receiving updates from the syncd on the master director, do 
you see the persistence flag? Come to think of it, I don't 
know if the persistence on the backup director comes from 
the synchd updates or from running ipvsadm when the 
backup becomes the master :-(

This was my reservation when I mentioned the -SH scheduler. 
I don't know what would happen there and I expect noone's 
tried it.

I wasn't real hopeful of anything in there being the cure, 
but if you could reproduce the problem with a recent kernel, 
it would save us tracking down a problem that was solved 
long ago, even if then it wasn't showing the symptoms you've 
got now.
