Possibly related... I was using SCSI tape to back up my 2.5.59 system
the other day. A media error was encountered, but the application (cpio
in this case) never saw the error and kept on trying to write to the bad
tape. Fortunately, I caught it after only 40 MB of associated syslog
entries had been made.

Thanks for the patch. I can now go back to "unattended" backup mode
(except for having to change tapes periodically) :-).
