Strange! But I will also tell you the subtlety ;-)  Here is a trick to use
(thanks to Ludovic):
(define md0
    (source (list "/dev/sda2" "/dev/sdb2"))
      (target "/dev/md0")
      (type raid-device-mapping)))
  (mapped-devices (list md0))
  (file-systems (cons (file-system
                        (title 'device)
                        (device "/dev/md0")
                        (dependencies (list md0))
                        (mount-point "/")
                        (type "ext4"))

The "dependencies" field makes sure that the file system is only mounted
after the array is assembled; I am not sure that this is your problem,
but you might want to give it a try.

In the long run, this should be reprogrammed: Devices and file systems
should wait until all their "inputs" are present, or at least wait for
a reasonable time.
