I am sorry, but there is something here, either some mistake on your
part or some other weird problem on your system I can not think of.

I don't seem to remember glabel ever failing to store metadata, unless
1) The device is non-existing 2) The device is mounted.
As a matter of fact, I did the glabel stuff on a machine a few hours
ago. This was already fully installed, I rebooted single user and was
done in less than 2 minutes.
And yes, if you get a metadata error, it means nothing was done so you
are *not* to go and change fstab!

Could you  please send us /etc/fstab and the results of ls /dev/ad*
