[zfs-discuss] Erroneous "device is too small" error

I am trying to replace a disk in one of my pools. The device size is 
identical. Same number of LBA48 sectors, same capacity to the byte 
reported by hdparm and smartctl as all the other disks in the pool.

But when I try to replace it:

cannot replace /dev/disk/by-id/wwn-0x50024e9001023c4d-part1 with 
/dev/disk/by-id/wwn-0x50014ee2ac95e58f: device is too small

What is going on?

This particular system is running ZoL 0.6.0-rc9. Known bug?
