You probably ran into


If yes, 3.3.3 has the fix! It is due to be released next week.

 During restart of our system, the leader elections can churn a bit as hosts remove themselves,
electing new leaders, which then themselves may withdraw from the election.  In one such
restart, we saw an election get 'stuck'.  Upon investigating, one node had it's session expired
(indicated in the zk logs), but one of its ephemeral nodes was still left.  We took down
the processes holdilng ephemeral nodes and this node remained.
