In the meantime, I am leaving the drive that is most likely the cause unmounted.

I just want to also ask if anyone knows whether a bad power supply could
cause only one disk to go bad (the others are fine and the power supply
has been replaced).  It is odd since this is the third disk in the same
position that has gone on me this summer (since I put the disks in), and
all are IBM branded.

If leaving the drive unmounted doesn't produce the same problem then you've found the likely cause. Personally though after the 2nd drive of a particular brand to fail I always want a different brand or at least model. In particular although you don't mention a model, I hope they're not 75 GXPs that you're getting replaced.
