Cluster resources are not initialized correctly after Rhs.exe process crashes on a Windows Server 2008 SP2-based cluster

Symptoms
Assume that the Resource Hosting Subsystem (Rhs.exe) process crashes because of a specific cluster resource time-out error. In this situation, the cluster resources are not stopped. Therefore, the cluster resources are not initialized correctly by the newly started Rhs.exe process during the recovery process. The failure of the cluster resources causes a cluster service disruption.
