Because it is unaware of DRBD sync activity.
If you want it to be aware of initial sync activity, you can write a script
to delay heartbeat starting until sync activity is finished. Before 0.7
DRBD came out, this was a good idea. Now, it's probably less important.

It was indeed there. I had changed a setting on my mail client some days
ago, and didn't see it (because it wasn't inline).
