That is EXACTLY what I'm seeing; the "OFFLINE'd" drive is the one that,
after a scrub, comes up with the checksum errors. It does *not* flag
any errors during the resilver and the drives *not* taken offline do not
(ever) show checksum errors either.
Interestingly enough you have 19.00.00.00 firmware on your card as well
-- which is what was on mine.
I have flashed my card forward to 20.00.07.00 -- we'll see if it still
does it when I do the next swap of the backup set.
