vinum0.p0.s10 is at PO 1023G - reaching over the 1TByte limit on
FreeBSD 4.x.
That is because block numbers are signed 32 bit values.
You need 5.x for volumes of this size.
I'm not shure how the limit could result in this kind of symptom,
but it won't work anyway and debugging this case can only change
Either use 5.x or be happy with your nearly 1T volume and start a
new one for the next disk.
