Ah, thanks! Reassuring to know.

Another RAIDframe question: Is there a decent way to replace a component on the 
fly that one is afraid of failing?
Say I get recoverable errors or squeeky noises from a component. Of course, I 
can add a hot spare, fail that component and begin a reconstruction. But then I 
have a three-hour window where, if another component fails, I have shot myself 
in the foot.
