I just haven't been able to answer your mail yet. Let's keep things
on the list.

Yes, this may well be the problem. However, I would not be able to
tell since you did not include any relevant information with your
initial email. Please send me the mdadm -E and mdadm -D outputs you
alluded to.

If the problem is really because of a wrong homehost field, then 

  mdadm -A /dev/mdX --homehost=whatever --update=homehost /dev/XXXX.....

is the way to fix it, meaning you assemble the array and force the
update of the superblock information. Neil Brown, the author, was
kind enough to take a look at your problem and the above is his
suggestion. If that doesn't work, we need more information.
