Ehm I don't see how that is possible, since that kernel definitely
contains SET_STREAMING as a write safe command. Are you 110% sure you
are running the kernel you think you are?

Any dmesg errors from 2.4.28? The sense reporting might be a bit broken
there, but if you don't set cgc->quiet it should report the error in the
kernel ring buffer at least.
