I have tried this again in d-i, and to me it does not look 
It _is_ specific to mdadm 2.4.1-6. I cannot reproduce it with mdadm 
2.5.2-6 in otherwise *exactly the same environment*. So it looks to me as 
if mdadm changed its behavior somewhere between these two versions.
The _new_ mdadm behaves correctly.

However, this behavior does make it impossible for us to switch from using 
mdrun to using mdadm in d-i before mdadm 2.5.2-6 is in testing.

I have tested d-i again with the new mdadm, both using mdrun and mdadm in 
the scripts. Result is that:
- for d-i mdadm 2.5.2-6 is OK for unstable;
- we can deprecate mdrun in d-i after that version has migrated to
