Does that mean that you're mixing bsdlabels and vinum? This could
certainly lead to problems. Furthermore I haven't tested root-on-vinum

That's because I haven't implemented the 'setupstate' keyword. In my
opinion any RAID that needs to be initialized should be initialized. We
could argue about that, of course. :-)

I'll try to replay that, but it could take some time to setup a
root-on-vinum configuration here.

That's what I said, yes.
