I had the same problembs but with a single-master setup. By any chance
are you using a non-default `missing_timeout` and/or `notify_on_missing`
on your workers?

For my issue I've a PR up [0] and now I can detach and  attach workers
as I like. But it is still not clear why we even run into problems here.

I figured out that attaching a worker after longer than
`missing_timeout` after a master start results in this problem on my
setup. (Default `missing_timeout` is 60 minutes.)
