Subject2.4.17 ide-scsi errors

I've seen some old posts (+yr) about this, with no conclusion, and I've
seen that the changelogs on the latest(s) -18pre and development pre have
addressed tape bug fixes and SCSI (including ide-scsi).

I'm having problems with a Seagate ATAPI STT220000A Travan Tapestor unit.

Has anyone had problems with that model at 2.4.17? Have these issues been
addressed specifically on these latest -pres?

I have the modules st, ide-scsi, scsi_mod, sg loaded.


1. The diagnostic program from Seagate (and their technical support) say
the unit is bad and need replacement):
zu /root/backup_scripts # diagsvlx rwtest -id:0

Checking System Configuration.

Retry the test with a different tape and/or clean the drive.

..although I can write/read anything without errors.

Do I really need a new tape drive unit, or is this "normal" with 2.4.17?
