Are they on the same node, or separate nodes ?

Could it be DNS (or other host resolution) problems ?

Have you tried monitoring the system(s) with something
like smokeping to watch for occasional network dropouts
that could explain this ?

I also wonder if your second problem might be related
to this is Maui isn't able to get a good list of nodes
all the time.
