Under a 2.4 FC 1 kernel with RAID-1, some systems would not properly flush
the drives on reboot/halt.  So when the system comes back up you'll see a
all the raid-1 members having to be rebuilt for the second disk.

The work-around is to put a -h in the halt script: HALTARGS="-i -d -h".
Maybe the 2.6 guys are trying to fix this for real.
