Well, "my" problem (since about 1.2.5 the system stopped if the SCSI
drive reached end-of-medium during "dd") is gone now (not only with
1.99.9, but already with 1.99.8, maybe much earlier, but maybe not:
I changed from AHA-1542 to AHA-2940 a while ago).

If "my case" is still of interest, I can try to revert the system to,
say, 1.2.13, borrow an AHA-1542 and try to hang it again...

Cheers -e
