I followed the handbook instructions. I think I tried to create it on
/dev/ar0s1. When I run gjournal stop /dev/ar0s1.journal, the
ar0s1.journalc still exists. When I stop that one, I am back to the
above devices. In short I can't get rid of the journal no matter what.

I'd hate to use something as bloated as ZFS. I don't wish to waste so
much RAM on it.

Thanks!
