    -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----


    2.0.34 is also broken. This time I compiled in verbose scsi error
    reporting... here's the scoop:

    Bad scbptr 16 during SELTO
    Referenced SCB 255 not vaild during SELTO
    SCSI SEQ = 0x5 SEQADDR= 0x5 SSTATO = 0x10 SSTAT1 = 0x8
    Bad scbptr 16 during SELTO
    Referenced SCB 255 not vaild during SELTO
    SCSI SEQ = 0x5 SEQADDR= 0x8 SSTATO = 0x10 SSTAT1 = 0x8

    enjoy... I'm back to 2.0.31
