I also noticed this when I tried to install a 2.0C snapshot about a
week ago, and I found it somewhat odd.  This is also annoying in
that the capacity isn't probed or displayed.  I wonder if this
"sd<n>: drive offline" thing is something which is actually spurious
or misleading, is it the drive which requires a "start drive"
command, or something else?
