One more thing:
aacraid:ID(0:01:0); Selection Timeout [command:0x28]
aacraid:ID(0:01:0) - IO failed, Cmd[0x28]
aacraid:ID(0:01:0) - Drive spindown failed
aacraid:Drive 0:1:0 returning error

So, the drive appears to be "dead".

But then, it was "killed" (while in slot 1) by inserting a brand spanking new 
Dell drive (fresh out of the wrapper) into slot 4.

I will try power cycling after the day ends, but this is just weird.
