IIRC the problem is with classic vinum in 5.3, not gvinum. However 
gvinum is not claimed to be complete or finished.

I created a vinum striped array of 2 drives in 5.2.1 which caused a 
fair bit of trouble (rarely remembered its configure on reboot). But 
when I switched to gvinum (forgot exactly when) the machine has been 
trouble free.
