Inserting a new node into a ring without auto_bootstrap implies that
it will join the ring, but will not contain any data for which it is
supposedly responsible. A 'nodetool repair' should cause data to be
replicated. But until that's done, the node should be returning
inconsistent results.

So, turning off auto_bootstrap probably just hid/changed the symptom
of the problem you're seeing rather than fix it./
