Unhappy Weird problem mounting RAID partitions

This problem's been bugging me for months, I hope that someone can help me figure out what's going on.

I have a very strange problem mounting *some* partitions from a mirrored RAID array on my home server. The array has 2 disks and 3 partitions, and runs off a 3ware Escalade 7006-2 card (twe driver). When I booted it up the 3ware BIOS screen does show that the array itself is degraded, but fsck has been run against it with no ominous error messages, which I'm using as a basis to think that the two drives just aren't in sync. All the partitions in the array are set to "noauto" in my fstab.

When I boot up the system and try to mount the partitions, I have this weird situation where the first partition mounts fine, but the other two don't. When I try to mount partitions 2 and 3 I get this message:

mount: [device]: Operation not permitted

This happens whether I use sudo in the mount command (which works for partition 1), or if I'm logged in as root. Nothing helpful appears in any of the usual logs (messages, dmesg.today, security, mount.today, etc. so I have nowhere to start in solving this problem.

Has anyone else had this kind of issue before?
