[Linux-HA] Heartbeat kills my lo:0, and therefore my LVS-DR node

I'm been trying to set up a two node LVS-DR setup on CentOS 4.4 such as
the one outlined here:
I feel I have my head wrapped around things rather well after a day of
mucking with this and a considerable amount of reading, but I have one
last gotcha which despite many workarounds I can't get through.
On my secondary node (heartbeat controlling ldirectord), heartbeat
insists on killing my loopback with the VIP. This of course prevents
that box from accepting any traffic on the VIP, making it unable to
answer requests. Worse still, the primary (live) director believes it
to be up since the RIP happily answers.
This must be something dumb on my part, but I swear I've followed every
howto, searched every archive and read every book I could find and I'm
not having any luck.
If I manually bring up lo:0 AFTER heartbeat kills it, sure enough things
I even tried writing my own resource to bring lo:0 up when Heartbeat
releases it, but the killing takes place AFTER the stop so it doesn't do
What's the two line answer to this? I know there must be one, but for
the life of me I can't figure it out.
I'm using the CentOS 4.4 extras packages, namely:
heartbeat.x86_64 2.0.7-1.c4 installed
heartbeat-ldirectord.x86_64 2.0.7-1.c4 installed
I promise I'll write a CentOS howto on this when i figure it out.
