SubjectRe: st0: Block limits 1 - 16777215 bytes.

Hello Glover , I get the same messages & do not get system
lock ups . Might try sending a little bit more info about
what is going on around any of the lock ups . If you can
reliably lock up the system by accessing the tape drive .
Then send some info to the list about the system & the tape
drive and how it is attached to the system . Hth , JimL
ps: All disk & tape drives are scsi .
