gvinum: All subdisks marked stale after a reboot

Hello, I've run into a problem while trying to migrate and old vinum 
array to gvinum (via blowing away all vinum info and rebuilding it in 

The array builds ok, but when I reboot every subdisk is marked stale and 
the plex is marked down. 

What am I doing wrong here?  More importantly, what info would I need to 
provide to help debug this problem?

Here's the array:
10 drives:
D media1                State: up       /dev/ad4s1      A: 1843/78159 MB
