Agree. The host with the lowest IP gets an extra half vote, so there is never a draw.

But back to your problem. I would tackle it like that: Set up a new DB
host. Wait for it to replicate. Check that replica is OK. (1) Shoot
original down. Erase database on original. Take first one up again and
let it replicate back.


(1) If the error replicates we have another problem, but let's first try this, ok?
