I think writing the question in a post puts my thoughts in order as I sometimes find the answer shortly after.

A BIOS setting seems to fix the issue. Checking the HARD DISK CONFIGURATION under the BOOT tab in the BIOS with just the two RAID drives attached shows...

Code:
SATA:SM-WDC WD6400
SATA:3M-WDC WE6400
Connecting the 3rd drive and cycling power the BIOS then shows...
Code:
SATA:SM-WDC WD6400
SATA:SS-WDC WD6400
SATA:3M-WDC WE6400
So disabling the SS one from the boot configuration and restarting. System booted up ok a few times in a row with the 3rd drive mounted in /media/backup.

Maybe this will assist someone else with this issue.

Now on to the 1u chassis overheating the CPU with the cover on. Ugh.
