While this patch would fix it for Kalle, I don't think it's a general
solution.  I haven't tested it, but from Kalle's conf file I assume
that you can put everything one one line, i.e it's not always the 3rd
argument.  You should therefore look for something like
/raid-disk\s+(\d)/ (in perl reg ex notation).

e.g. my config file is:

1505:tbm@unjust: ~] m /etc/raidtab
raiddev /dev/md0
    raid-level 1
    nr-raid-disks 2
    nr-spare-disks 0
    persistent-superblock 1
    device /dev/hde3
    raid-disk 0
    device /dev/hdg3
    raid-disk 1

I *assume* you could just list all of this on one line.  But I didn't
test this...
