Is this bug still present? I've installed a fresh 8.04.2 amd64 in a VirtualBox 2.1.2 with three SATA harddrives. When i switch off a drive, kernel is loadding but at the end the raid arrays are stopped and the system is unusable.

root@ubuntu:~# dpkg-reconfigure mdadm
"Do you want to boot your system if your RAID becomes degraded?" -> "YES"

This would be a real show stopper for the 8.04 LTS...
