[ILUG] Raid disk query

There is a line in mdadm.conf that says
DEVICE partitions /dev/sda1 /dev/sda2
So I guess its old device names.
I suspect the answer is what was mentioned earlier about using desktop
drives in raid. I have seen the problem twice now on two different
arrays and both problems happened immediately after reboot. When the
drives are reintroduced into the array they work away fine with no
It would be handy to be able to configure the raid array to be a bit
slower in dumping out drives.

Is your raid declared by old device naming scheme such as /dev/sda or is
it using uuid? (/dev/disk/by-uuid)?
I could foresee a boot issue where the second drive is not caught up in
time and fails your RAID. Happened a lot on the crappy sil3112
