My apologies, I had version amnesia - it's been a hard week and only 
half way through :( I was thinking of the 3.0.x versions which are 
now long since EOL and during which many failover related changes 
were made. I would still suggest upgrading if you can and see if the 
problem persists - 3.1.3 is EOL.
