It is supposed to be fixed in this version.  One possibility is to 
re-create the array using the create command.  Do you remember the EXACT 
parameters that you used to create this array?

Would look something like:

mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=5 --chunk=128 --raid-disks=4  /dev/sde1 
/dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1

If that is correct we would have to recreate it with:
mdadm --create /dev/md0 --assume-clean --level=5 --chunk=128 
--raid-disks=4  /dev/sde1 /dev/sda1 missing /dev/sdc1

Sorta what the guy did here:
