Raid5 looses the spare in reboot

Hi,

I get this mail after every reboot:

Quote:
This is an automatically generated mail message from mdadm
running on yyy.zzz.com

A SparesMissing event had been detected on md device /dev/md0.

Faithfully yours, etc.

P.S. The /proc/mdstat file currently contains the following:

Personalities : [raid6] [raid5] [raid4]
md0 : active raid5 sdb1[0] sdc1[1] sdd1[4]
781419520 blocks super 1.2 level 5, 512k chunk, algorithm 2 [3/3] [UUU]

unused devices: <none>
/etc/mdadm.conf looks like this:

Quote:
MAILADDR root
ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid5 num-devices=3 metadata=1.2 spares=1 name=yyy.zzz.com:0 UUID=7e634bd2:6780596e:8456192c:55513501
devices=/dev/sdb1,/dev/sdc1,/dev/sdd1,/dev/sde1
So after every reboot In need to

Quote:
mdadm --add /dev/md0 /dev/sde1
After this the md0 looks like this:

What is causing this? What can I do so that md0 remembers the spare device /dev/sde1?

Fedora 16 i686 installed on /dev/sda1 (swap=/dev/sda2, no other partitions on sda, and no other disks than sd[abcde]). Up-to date, running 3.3.0-4.fc16.i686 kernel currently.
