If the nodes have all seen each other before ("the cluster has coalesced
once") then AFAIK this statement is not true. The ring state is persisted,
nodes don't need to talk to a seed to start.

As I don't think the seed node wrinkle exists, I'm pretty sure all you
really have to do is make sure the node is answering on the Thrift and
Gossip ports and that other nodes all see it as UP.
