Yeah, this is strange behavior. Depending on when/how the error shows
up, a server could be sent on a reboot party.
I haven't run into I/O error issues yet, but by the time that happens, I
hope ZFS will generate an event that can be easily trapped by an
application that sends warning emails or automagically IMs. Same for the
desktop scenario, where Gnome would be notified and pops up a system
modal error dialog or something.
