I had the same problem with a 1950 and a 2950.

Firmware Version                  : 5.0.2-0003
Minimum Required Firmware Version : 5.1.1-0033

I just upgraded the firmware version and since then never had the problem 
again.

I have the exact same status on the controller of a poweredge 1950, but it
doesn't seem to be rebuilding anything, as it was 30% yesterday and is
still 30% today.
And by the way, I understand that a vdisk might have to rebuild when a disk
is changed, but what can the controller itself be rebuilding?
