Thanks for the suggestion Andrey.  I tried deleting /etc/zfs/
zpool.cache both pre- and post-import but the same "phantom" storage
pool showed up.

I did also try importing the pool so I could destroy it but, not
surprisingly, that didn't work.  I received the following message:
"internal error: Value too large for defined data type
Aborted (core dumped)"
