Maybe you need a newer mdadm - 3.2.2 or newer might be required.  but you
didn't say which version you were using, or which kernel.

Or maybe you have 0.90 metadata and a kernel earlier than 3.1 that imposed
some limits, but I think that allows up-to 2GB, not upto 1, so that can't be
the problem.

Maybe you can just
 for i in /sys/block/md1/md/dev-*
 do echo 0 > $i/size
 done

and try again. '0' means 'max' in this context.
