So, it turns out that a user came into IRC with the same issue and 
provided the logs.  Raymond Wagner found the bug and we'll be fixing it, 
soon--at least in unstable/development.  Not sure at this point whether 
we'll also put a fix in for 0.24-fixes or just say that 0.25 is the 
first to support very large storage arrays (>8TB).
