I don't think switching some slots around will make much difference. 
Biggest difference between your system (with glitches) and John 
without glitches is he isn't reliant on a single spindle for 
recording.  You're using a 2 disk LVM which may mean that all your 
I/O is on a single spindle, while John is striped across 5 spindles. 
There's a big difference there...

Switiching may make a difference as to which stream(s) suffer the corruption.
