Just for others that have the same problem:
This problem appeared again when installing a new kernel.
After some searching, i found it was /boot/grub/device.map that was causing this trouble.
I renamed (then removed) that file and reinstalled the kernel.
Now everything is fine.
/boot/grub/device.map was made in the time grub couldn't boot a md-partition ... a long time ago ;)
