Thanks for the tip. Hopefully someone stumbles upon that and finds it
useful during a google search, because I wasn't finding anything :-)

Since it was a 3 way mirror it was trivial to break the mirror and rebuild
with GPT. I wanted to do that for a while anyway. After the rebuild was
complete it had no issues booting up. I'm guessing it was just something
stupid with the old disk layout.
