It looks like closing after the first O_WRONLY open triggers the GEOM re-taste.
When the second O_WRONLY is attempted there is a chance (which is very high on 
my system) that something has the GEOM provider opened with read and exclusive bits.
It's the exclusive bit that causes the open to fail.

Looks like it's g_label_taste.

Not sure if something recently changed in that area or if I've just got much
