vrrp issues with 1941

Recently I had to replace a failing 1760 router, with new 1941 that has IOS 15. The 1941 is having an issue with vrrp that I cannot resolve. It is not running at the right priority but in the "down" state. It is communicating with the 2nd router, which is in "backup" state. But I have had to lower the priority on the 2nd router (870 with 12.4(24)T) to force this one to Master, which is the preferred state.

#sh vrrp
GigabitEthernet0/0.1 - Group 1
  State is Master
  Virtual IP address is
  Virtual MAC address is 0000.5e00.0101
  Advertisement interval is 1.000 sec
  Preemption enabled, delay min 120 secs
  Priority is 95  (cfgd 105)
  Authentication MD5, key-string
  Master Router is (local), priority is 95
  Master Advertisement interval is 1.000 sec
  Master Down interval is 3.628 sec



interface GigabitEthernet0/0.1
 encapsulation dot1Q 1 native
 ip address
 vrrp 1 ip
 vrrp 1 preempt delay minimum 120
 vrrp 1 priority 105
 vrrp 1 authentication md5 key-string 7 [removed]

How do I determine why this router is not at the right priority? I don't see anything obvious in the vrrp debug logs.
