I'm curious, are you running ZFS on a pair of partitions or 2 whole  
disks? It is mentioned in many of the ZFS tutorials I've followed  
that you won't get the performance advantage out of ZFS unless you  
use full disks.

The work around is ok I suppose, but it it involves using the metadb  
system, half the reason I immediately ditched RAID in favour of ZFS  
was so I didn't have to use that...
