The number is rmtab (e.g. 0x000002) is like a reference count. The

I am correct in interpreting what you say as:

When you fail over from 'a' to 'b', it does so quite quickly, but
when you then fail back from 'b' to 'a', you get a 15 minute

If not, please explain in more detail.
If so:
Why exactly are you doing this. It doesn't seem to make sense.
Did 'b' get rebooted in the interim?
It could be that you are hitting the same issue discussed here:
