First, I have to say, this is one of the more... creative... ways I've
seen a cluster built.

Well, as I indicated above, your system is in no way a normal cluster.
Because of this, and because of the sparse information provided, it's
very difficult to determine what the problem might be.

Well, technically you can look at the ChangeLog, but I'm not sure that
will help your particular situation.

If you put back the vdelivermail binary from 5.4.9, does it seem to
'work' again?  More than likely, there was a bug fixed in the older
version that allowed your odd system of clustering to work, whereas now,
it's doing the correct checks and balances.

Again, this is really only guess.  I'd try putting your old vdelivermail
binary in place and see if that resolves your issue.
