According to the configs you sent, the subdisks have no driveoffsets 
configured.  I have no idea how that could have happened, but apparently 
classic vinum tolerated this.  Or is this from "vinum printconfig", and 
classic vinum didn't print it?

Please check with:

dd if=<device> skip=8 count=6|tr -d '\000-\011\200-\377'

This reads the on-disk metadata.
