(Calling all FreeNAS experts) GPT table problems in softraid 1

This is the second time it has happened. Last time I just scrapped the raid and started from scratch. Now I want to identify what the problem is and how to solve it. I have two sata 750 gig drives in a raid 1 using the UFS standard. Got everything set up and working but eventually the raid fails to mount and I cant seem to get it working right. One of disks according the error log says ad08: GPT table corrupt.
I can't seem to get to the bottom of a solution via forms.

The data is backed up and safe so my questions are.
1.) Can this be fixed and how?
2.) How can I prevent this? Use advance 4k sectors prior to format?
3.) Use a different file standard? ZFS, NTFS?
4.) Forget freenas, use ____? (I enjoy freenas, but if I have to deal with shit, I am going to switch)

I am using the older FreeNAS 7, not 8.

Thank you.

What is being detected as "ad08"? Is it a disk not a member of the mirror?

It is a member of the softraid 1.
I am using a raid card for sata connections.
