As the summary says ...
The nice_failback button (under: Cluster -> heartbeat
monitor -> configuration options) is always toggled to
'on' state during window startup; i.e. it dows not
follow the defined state in the configuration file
/etc/ha.d/ha.cf.

This is very bad, since it toggles a cluster from an
active-active
to an Active-Standby configuration; i.e. only one
cluster node
operates - the other sits and waits for the partner
node to crash.

I noticed it the first time in Webmin 1.111. The bug is
still in 1.121.
Thus a WebMin update did not fix it.

    Forget about this.
    nice_failback is an "existence"-toggle; i.e. it doesn't
    have a parameter
    If it exists in the config file it means 'on' otherwise it
    means 'off'

    Entries in the configuration file:
    nice_failback on ...or...
    nice_failback off

    leads to a systax-error and the heartbeat module of webmin
    thinks 'on',
    since it sees the keyword 'nice_failback'
