Well, you are supposed to be running disklabel -e on md10, not md10e.  You edit
the disklabel on a disk or slice, not the disklabel from inside of a partition
defined by that disklabel.  Make sense? :)  Disklabel should probably fail to
actually run in this case since md10e doesn't exist and certainly wouldn't have
a valid disklabel to edit if it did exist.
