Thank you for your answer. I tested normal concat with both 5.2.1-RELEASE and
5.3-RELEASE with similar results. Plenty of people (at least I get this
impression after browsing several mailing lists and websites) have working
vinum setups with 5.2.1 (where gvinum doesn't exist) so there's definately
something I'm doing wrong here. So my problem is not limited to raid5.
I'm aware of gvinum and the bug and actually tried to cvsup & make world
last night but it didn't succeed due to some missing files in netgraph
dirs. I will try again tonight.
