vinum "Invalid argument"

My vinum configuration got corrupted after booting with one of the
drives disconnected. I think I've had this problem before and was able
to fix it by recreating from the config file. Now when I run "vinum
create vinum.conf", I get the following errors:

# vinum create ~/vinum.conf
   1: drive d1 device /dev/ad6s1e
** 1 : Invalid argument
   2: drive d2 device /dev/ad4s1e
** 2 : Invalid argument
0 drives:
. ..

Without the drives, my subdisks are "crashed", my plex is "faulty", and
my volume is "down". I'm running HEAD. I've verified that both ad6s1 and
ad4s1 have disklabels with e partitions of type vinum. Even if I can't
preserve my data, my config should be valid and create the RAID 0 volume
I had before.
