It might very well be a WD bug. I had three (3) identical WDC
WD2500AAJS-08B4A0 drives fail on me with the same _identical_ error
(same sector number to the last digit):

All 3 drives endured the same multiple rewriting of the sector in
question, as they did multiple smart self-tests. I am currently in the
process of replacing these two drives with Seagates, (the other 2 in the
4 member array are Maxtors). Will see what happens.

P.S. See threads http://marc.info/?l=linux-raid&m=122523835815697 and
http://marc.info/?l=linux-raid&m=122669103213041 for more info on my
setup and hardware.
