Yes it's an external usb3 drive. That's interesting and I'll test that
tomorrow. I recently commented out a GENERIC kernel the USB debug line
because the console was filling up with usb attach messages on boot.
They were appearing after the login prompt. I have a couple of usb3 hubs
attached and the disk is attached through one such hub. (although it was
done this way because sometimes it'd be seen as /dev/da0 and others as
/dev/da4. And possibly linked to this, when it came up as /dev/da0 it
was always with a usb2 speed rather than usb3).

thanks everyone for your input.
