ZFS resilvering drive on an ONLINE and healthy pool

I recently imported an 11 drive RAIDZ3 pool.  For some reason, one of 
the disks was unavailable (let's assume I didn't have it fully seated 
when I inserted it).

Upon import, the pool was degraded with a missing disk (as expected).  I 
exported the pool within ~10 seconds of importing it.  Nothing should 
have attempted to read or write to the pool except for zfs itself. 
Actually all ZFS filesystem in the pool are readonly (it is used for 

I reseated the drive and imported again.  Now I see the status below. 
Note that:

1. The pool is ONLINE

2. All 11 drives are ONLINE

3. Apparently a resilver is in progress

4. The resilver is progressing at "1/s" (whatever that means).

Can anyone tell me what is going on?  I assume that a mini-resilver took 
place because one of the drives was unavailable for ~10 seconds, but I 
would imaging that this would have completed rather quickly.

Thank you,
