I'm seeing a similar symptom but only with gstripe and only on usb disks
(the same drives on Firewire work fine) - I can reproduce it (all be it
slowly) by dumping a big file system and restoring it to a gstripe pair
of usb drives - it will will after up to 2 hours.   Unfortunately the
machine is a semi-production server so I have to time my test window - I
have built a DDB/KDB kernel for it and sometime this week I'll try and
get a trace.

P.S. there is a bug report for this - i386/79169
