SubjectATA device reset, shoud I be concerned?

During heavy disk load on my laptop, sometimes the IDE disk will pause for a
second and then continue. I get this in my kernel log:

[ 9031.028000] ata1.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x2

My question: What is this telling me, and do I need to be concerned?
Everything continues to work normally after the message: no I/O errors, no
fsck errors, etc.

I've seen some similar reports on the mailing list, but they include slightly
different messages. I would appreciate any information!
