Did it give an error on the first try and if so, which one ?

You should check /var/log/messages for i/o errors and check your disks

I have had my raid1 arrays rebuild sometime without a (for me known)
reason. Even had a defective networkcard kernel panic the machine for
two hours and the raids were still working afterwards ;)
