[erlang-questions] Mnesia - Partitioned network problem

I am running distributed mnesia on a cluster of two servers,  and
 interaction with mnesia occurs on   replicates

Due to an intermittent network failure, replication had stopped. In the logs
for  was the following message:

=ERROR REPORT==== 23-Aug-2011::23:56:37 ===
** Node '' not responding **
** Removing (timedout) connection **

This message went unnoticed until  was restarted for an unrelated reason
and it  logged the following error at startup:

=ERROR REPORT==== 24-Aug-2011::14:22:09 ===
Mnesia(''): ** ERROR ** mnesia_event got {inconsistent_database,
running_partitioned_network, ''}

Question 1: How is it possible that only  detected the disconnect from
 and  did not detect a disconnect from ?
Question 2: How is it possible that  did not log the
running_paritioned_network error?

I realize that the answer to Q1 may lead to an answer to Q2, as well.

Note, that neither server was set as master.

Thank you.
