Another interesting bit of information:
The rebuild definitely failed ...
raid1: Error re-writing parity!
... but "raidctl -s raid1" still says it is in progress:
/dev/wd2e status is: reconstructing. Skipping label.
Component label for /dev/wd3e:
Row: 0, Column: 1, Num Rows: 1, Num Columns: 2
Version: 2, Serial Number: 2009011200, Mod Counter: 177
Clean: No, Status: 0
sectPerSU: 128, SUsPerPU: 1, SUsPerRU: 1
Queue size: 100, blocksize: 512, numBlocks: 312581632
RAID Level: 1
Root partition: No
Last configured as: raid1
Parity status: DIRTY
Reconstruction is 100% complete.
Parity Re-write is 100% complete.
Copyback is 100% complete.
This looks to like it hasn't aborted the rebuild completely.
I'm not sure whether it matters but I was monitoring the rebuild with
"raidctl -S raid1" until it failed.
