Is this bug reproducable?
Can you file it as a bug report at ?

Here's an idea that will hopefully make you restart your cluster
without loosing the data.

Try performing the system restart wo/ node 3 (the node that fails first)

The can under most circumstances start wo/ all nodes preset.
Node 3 can in your case later be started with "ndb --initial", any join 
the cluster wo/ using it's own filesystem.

Question: What make you think that "think they're in the same Nodegroup"?
The printouts in ndb_mgm w.r.t nodegroup is not valid during startphase 
1 & 2 (actully it gets set during startphase 2).
