Partition distribution between nodes

Hi all,

In the beginning we were running four nodes with n-value of 2. The partitions were distributed 25% for each node. Now when we added fifth node (still having n-value of 2), the partitions are distributed in following way: 25%, 19%, 19%, 19% and 19%. The ring size in use is 64. Is this normal behavior? The cluster seems to be working correctly. However I was expecting each node to have 20% of the partitions.

Best regards,
Manu Mäki
