That's impossible.  You can't put plexes on drives; they've got to be
on subdisks, which you don't mention.  This is why I ask
(http://www.vinumvm.org/vinum/how-to-debug.html) for output from
vinum(8), which I see you added below:

It would be nice to know when this was done; I assume it was after the
successful fsck.

Still, to continue...

It would be interesting to know whether this was with the file system
mounted and active or not.  There have been some race conditions which
might cause this problem.  If the file system was mounted, could you
please try again with it unmounted?  If it wasn't, the information in
the URL above would helpful.
