[ I've seen the response where one astute list participate noticed you're
running a 2-way raidz device, when the documentation clearly states that
the mimimum raidz volume consists of 3 devices ]

Not very astute.  The documentation clearly states that the minimum is
2 devices.

zpool(1M):

        A raidz group with N disks of size X can  hold  approxi-
        mately (N-1)*Xbytes and can withstand one device failing
        before data integrity is compromised. The minimum number
        of devices in a raidz group is 2. The recommended number
        is between 3 and 9.

If the minimum were actually 3, this configuration wouldn't work at all.
