I guess thats not the problem (definitely not in my environment ;-)

I am using farm as storage, but if I understand David correct, wants
to update only the debian package (both sheepdog 0.4, but with
different startup scripts) so he already had farm storage...

The problem I think is, that he kills the sheeps manually instead
of a cluster shutdown. In this case it seems to me, that the sheeps
invalidate their data. If he kills all sheep at the same time, than
no sheep with valid data remains....

A similar problem happens to me, if I had a complete network error
and my three nodes cant see each other. I didnt find a way to
recover from this situation...
