In the normal case, absolutely. That should happen quickly. I think it is
likely the case that you've hit another race condition where this phantom
node is not correctly marked as dead. In this case, even if it is removed
from some nodes in the cluster, it will get re-added by the node that
doesn't have the phantom node marked down. I can't say definitively without
some more information though.
