thanks for the report, even though I'm not really sure what your problem
actually is.
I've no "real" raid here, only two partitions on my harddisk configured
as raid, to test the basic functions of mdadm. However I was able to 
examine and assemble that raid after booting with crux-2.5-test3:

#> mdadm --examine --scan --config=partitions
ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid1 num-devices=2 UUID=59d193c1:4b1ad41f:43f33740:3d6f013e
#> mdadm --assemble --config=partitions --super-minor=0 /dev/md0
mdadm: /dev/md0 has been started with 2 drives.

Doesn't that work for you?

HTH and best regards
