I had this exact problem with a production box quite a while ago. This was on a machine that was running 5.x. What I did was remove one of the mirrored drives, booted it in another machine. I put in a 6.x CD, ran sysinstall and did a binary upgrade. This was the only way I could fix the problem. Since then, the same box after being put back into production is currently running fine at 6.2 If you have good backups, or even better, a RAID1 system, a binary upgrade may be the easiest fix. It was for me.
