Hmm, you had frequent changes where the 4th node left and then joined the
cluster combined with a few message re-transmits.
The frequency of the join/left cycles is strange, besides that it's not too
Strange is that while the status module from the cfs got all members the 
(decentral database) did not received the 4ths node updates...

It isn't a local file per se, but it is in fact a virtual one, i.e. its 
is read only and gets produced by the the pmxcfs on the fly (locally).
It pulls the information from corosync and its own internal state.
This means that it should be completely the same on each node, when adding
nodes or similar it naturally can differ for a very short amount of time.

How is it different on the different nodes?

Honestly, I would just stop the HA services (this marks the VMs 
currently under
HA) and then do a clean restart of the pve-cluster corosync services,
I'd do this for all nodes but not all at the same time :) This is as 
safe as it
can get, no VM should be interrupted, and I expected that even if we 
know the
full trigger of this it will result in the same action.

Before that do the omping test to see if multicast works as expected in your

If this test go through the restart should fix it.
I'm know it's not ideal but I have not too much time available currently and
such problems are often result of small details of a setup or the node
