No it's not too obvious and maybe I need to work through all the 
options again and document what went wrong each time but I did try to 
run lilo on each: some ran without complaint but didn't solve the 
problem, and some resulted in lilo complaining something along the 
lines that it was using the current boot device and that device x (a 
numeric representatiion, sorry, didn't note it) wasn't a device in 
which it could write its stuff.

Well, it encourages me!

Yes, found that.  Mostly the differences are that the one I worked 
from uses mdadm and that one uses raidtools2 but I thought they said 
the same things really and I couldn't get either approach: mdadm or 
raidtools/raidtab, to work for me.

One thing: I asssume that mdrecoveryd isn't holding an inode active?  
I _think_ I've failed just as totally after killing mdrecoveryd but 
can't vouch for having done that every time.
