Hmm, this used to be an issue in the PERC3 days when PERC3DC was a 
LSI/AMI controller and PERC3Di was an Adaptec controller.

And the Adaptec stuff was known to eat your files but finally fixed by dell.
But these times are long ago so please stop spreading FUD.

And btw contrary to your statement I have seen dmraid with C5/RHEL5 eat 
files - on otherwise rock stable server hardware.
