Long story short, you're in good shape. As long as "ring_members" and
"ring_ownership" are showing the same nodes, there is no need to worry.
 You might want to checkout Riaknostic [1] which has some code [2] that
lets you fix potential issues with node connectedness before they strike in

"connected_nodes" is the a list of the nodes connected via distributed
erlang [3], which may or may not include all of the Riak nodes. Suffice it
to says, it's less then clear what all of these mean, so I've opened up an
issues against the wiki to make sure we get it documented [4].
