That is why I asked here in the first place. I was not sure about how
RAID1 on linux works but it seems to me that when a crash occured it
choses one of the RAID1 images and rebuilds from that, but I am afraid
that maybe in that state only the databytes that tell XFS it is clean,
where set right, and other fs structures are corupt.

I should xfscheck that partition but I would really prefer to do that when
all other fails (beeing a production server).
