Of course I meant swapoff=YES, I just pasted the /etc/defaults/rc.conf line.

Right, but I would personally expect people to run shutdown in a normal
situation.  If they have to halt the box in a hurry then the rebuild will
be an issue.

I'm not necessarily advocating a single raid volume for everything, I'm
just saying that it seems to work pretty well for me even with swap.

I started out with 5 (or 6? can't remember) raid volumes, but I found the
higher (I guess) number of i/o operations was hosing up the ahc driver.
Once the newer port makes it into the tree I might try again.
