There was that perl bug (don't have the reference handy right now) that caused MD to crash after a md-mx-ctrl reread.  workaround was to stop then start it instead.

Its fixed in 2.68 beta 1 but I was hoping that 2.68 could be released so the debian package could be made available.  If I know this isn't going to happen for the forseeable then I may as well go ahead and install from source.
