Which FreeBSD version do you use?
It should work fine with 6.0. If you cannot upgrade, you need to use -h
option, eventually you can create slices one sector smaller so they
don't end at the same sector as disk.

BTW. Don't create partitions on adXsX if you mirror slices. Instead
create them on mirror provider.
