  I suspect this feeling (from the OP) comes from the following:

  - Problems with "aacraid" have been frequent and long-standing.
  - Documentation on these issues from Dell is almost non-existent.
  - There has been no indication of progress from Dell or Adaptec.

  All in all, it is quite easy to get the feeling that Dell is trying to
"sweep this under the rug", if you will.  I'm sure you and other fine
engineering people at Dell don't feel that way, and I'm sure you're working
to fix it, but in the meantime, everyone else is just kind of stuck waiting.  
That's not a good thing.  We're your customers.  We don't like feeling like
we're being kept in the dark.
