My example shows 4 raidz2 vdevs, with each vdev having 6 disks, along
with a log vdev, and a cache vdev.  Not sure where you're seeing an
imbalance.  Maybe it's because the pool is currently resilvering a
drive, thus making it look like one of the vdevs has 7 drives?

My home file server ran with mixed vdevs for awhile (a 2 IDE-disk
mirror vdev with a 3 SATA-disk raidz1 vdev) as it was built using
scrounged parts.

But all my work file servers have matched vdevs.
