There are some bugs relating to the mptsas driver including at least one
private ones. It seems LSI has some updates that weren't upstreamed and hence
haven't made it back to Fedora. There are hints that some important customers
have an interest in seeing the updates get into Fedora, but I don't know the
current status.

I never figured out what in gnome was triggering the problem. It eventually
also happened in xfce and was also triggered by file prompts in some apps,
so it might have been nautilis related.

I believe I can still make it happen with smartctl and that has the advantage
of only taking out one side of my mirror which makes looking at what
happened a bit easier.

I am cc'd or the reporter for the following (possibly related) bugs:
