dhcpd failover: link startup timeout

I've figured out how to set one dhcpd in my setup into partner-down
mode. Now I'm having a problem where, after one host returns, that both
hosts have a minutely:
dhcpd2 dhcpd: failover: link startup timeout
in their logfiles.
That by itself is not that troubling, inspecting the failover-state
tells me that both peers are in state 2 (normal), and they're
communcating (you can see that when you start one up). But after an hour
(which is the MCLT right now) one of the hosts starts complaining about
dhcpd1 dhcpd: commit_leases: unable to commit: Bad file descriptor
and fails to give out leases.
I'm sorry if my question isn't quite to the point or if I'm missing
something obvious here.
