Hi René

So please do not even consider to merge this change.

This is interesting, I also wrote in the bug report gracePeriod
calculation might be related.

IMHO making this value configurable would might solve it, but it is hard
to "guess" what a good grace period would be.

In terms of VMware it depends on amounts of esx in the clusters, and
they can be different.

But another question is, why make one _global_ grace period for every
hypervisor. Think about, users can have mixed hypervisors setups.

So to me, a global grace period setting might not be the best solution,
instead we should take care hypervisor functionality, in this case
VMware, it handels HA by itself.

I know a VR in 4.5 would be broken after an VMware HA event, but there
is another global setting, which can be enabled if you like for out of
band migrations router restarts.

So to me, in 4.5 I am +1 for the patch of daan makes sense, if
hypervisor is VMware.
