Here is the followup! I have just rebuilt the server from scratch using 
a 9.1-RC1 amd64 memstick image. Used the GPT labels directly in the 
fstab and ignored glabel. And guess what? It works fine as you probably 
expected. So it was definitely user error and the glabel broke it. At 
least I've learnt a lot more about partitioning and filesystems than I 
knew before anyway!

So once again, thank you for all your help. There is an open PR for 
this that I raised which is amd64/170646 , I don't think there is any 
way for me to close this myself is there? If somebody reads this who has 
the rights to do so then please close it with "user is an idiot" :)
