This is a bug in Vinum. It shouldn't let you start it manually.
>From the man page:
DRIVE LAYOUT CONSIDERATIONS
vinum drives are currently BSD disk partitions. They must be of type
vinum in order to avoid overwriting data used for other purposes. Use
disklabel -e to edit a partition type definition. The following display
shows a typical partition layout as shown by disklabel(8):
# size offset fstype [fsize bsize bps/cpg]
a: 81920 344064 4.2BSD 0 0 0 # (Cyl. 240*- 297*)
b: 262144 81920 swap # (Cyl. 57*- 240*)
c: 4226725 0 unused 0 0 # (Cyl. 0 - 2955*)
e: 81920 0 4.2BSD 0 0 0 # (Cyl. 0 - 57*)
f: 1900000 425984 4.2BSD 0 0 0 # (Cyl. 297*- 1626*)
g: 1900741 2325984 vinum 0 0 0 # (Cyl. 1626*- 2955*)
In this example, partition ``g'' may be used as a vinum partition. Par-
titions ``a'', ``e'' and ``f'' may be used as UFS file systems or ccd
partitions. Partition ``b'' is a swap partition, and partition ``c''
represents the whole disk and should not be used for any other purpose.
The vinum utility uses the first 265 sectors on each partition for con-
figuration information, so the maximum size of a subdisk is 265 sectors
smaller than the drive.
Choose a different partition, and reset partition c to "unused".
