Well, that did eventually work.  :-)

Seems the errors were due to a poor connection on the bus (or possibly a
poor power connection to one half of the chassis.  The proof will
probably come when it survives the nightly /etc/daily runs....

In figuring all this out I ended up with a raidframe panic during the
first attempted reconstruction, and then a problem when the "used_spare"
also encountered similar errors, but would not fail either automatically
or with "raidctl -f".

I'll post full details on the panic and the failure to fail later....
