ar0 is often a cheap onboard RAID device.  So cheap as it doesn't even
hide ad4 and ad6 which is also hooked up to the motherboard.

Installing to ad4 installed it allright.  But now the hardware raid
will screw things up a bit.

Either use gmirror with ad4 and ad6, or use hardware raid on ar0 only.
