Wow, this list is great!

I got a few responses, thanks to:
--Mike Salehi and Greg Obremski, for pointing out the problem with the
metadb's being on the same controller (I wanted to isolate the metadb
problem, put it on a known good disk, before expanding it to a couple slices
on the OS disk)
--Matthew Briggs, for reaffirming my distrust of the DiskSuite GUI
--Sabrina Downard, for pointing out a known bug that causes metatool and
metastat to report differently.

But it was William Hathaway that suggested the correct fix to my problem.

It turns out the SUNWmd stuff was deleted from /etc/inetd.conf (prolly
during a jumpstart). Adding that stuff in and kill HUPing inetd fixed it
right up.

Thanks again, everyone....
