Thanks for all responses which solved my problem!

My main problem was using the raid raw partition '/dev/raid0d' (i386)
for mounting: That disabled the raidctl control access.

Second, I was not aware of the fact that running 'raidctl -i ...'
doesn't destroy the data on an already built raid and is the solution
for my crash damaged raid1 (though it was mentioned in the raidctl man
page ;-)).

Yep, sometimes murphies law helps... ;-)

Great! Will this go into NetBSD 1.4.2, too?
