No. It hangs the computer. about 2-3 seconds after plugging the
drives back in. Did it twice to verify it wasn't a fluke. Verified
drives removed from /dev, then
plugged them back in -- was able to do about 1-2 ls commands on /dev, then
keyboard goes dead.

First time I tried unplugging the power cables and replugging --
that hung...
2nd time tried unplugging a sata cable and replugging -- that hung too.

Hopefully you won't need any more tests of this exact nature...? :-)
