SuSE8.2 root RAID1 reiserfs, always resyncing after boot

How can I prevent the RAID1 for root from doing a resync with each boot?
Shouldn't the RAID be clean after a regular shutdown?
I also did a 'fsck' on /dev/md0 from the rescue system. But next time
after the system was shutdown, when /dev/md0 was the root device (rw),
it would resync again with the next boot.
/dev/md1 is perfectly fine and resyncs not too often.
Some advice, please.
I have setup my system to boot with GRUB from a harddisk device and have
the root filesystem on a RAID1 device. /home is on another RAID1 device.
The two harddisks are on seperate controllers.
Everything works fine exept the fact that '/dev/md0' is resyncing
everytime after boot. Is this normal or can you show a way to avoid that.
Info about the configuraton:
SuSE8.2, kernel 2.4.20-4GB (compiled with reiserfs.o and raid1.0
builtin), raidtools V1.00.3-24
/dev/md0 / reiserfs
/dev/hda3 /boot ext2
/dev/md1 /home reiserfs
# md device [dev 9, 0] /dev/md0 queried online
I built the RAID1 according the instructions in
'Software-RAID-HOWTO.html' in degraided mode and 'raidhotadd'(ed)
