Active/Active HA with OSPF is dropping packets when innactive member becomes active

L1 Bithead

I am seeing an issue where upon pulling the plug in an active/active setup, OSPF does it's job.  A few packets are lost but it is within an acceptable range.  My issue stems from when the innactive member comes back online and joins the HA.  I can't confirm this, but it feels as if the OSPF routes are coming up before the FW services are ready to process the packets.  This causes an outage of a few seconds instead of near instantaneous fail back.  I have configured BFD in hopes it would aleviate the issue but I am still seeing drops of up to a few seconds.  We are looking for near instantaneous failvoer and fail back (So please no arguments about Active-Passive being easier, etc)  I'm hoping if this is the case I can somehow adjust how the failed member rejoins the active/active pair and properly syncs all data before the OSPF process even begins.
