Thanks for getting back to me! :)

Killing the loaded node is the easiest; manual unbanning of the other nodes
is still required. Combinations of enabling and disabling nodes may fix the
situation too.

Ah, I missed that: '--brief --fast' works just fine. So obviously the
validation does not work...

Ok, I will report back the stack traces in a few days (I'm afraid I can
only do these during the weekend).
