Repeatable hang with bad CD.

I've experienced severe hangs of a Linux machine running the 2.0.29 kernel,
while trying to read a CD in a 4x SCSI reader.

The fact is that when a defective CD is mounted and read, the machine finishes
needing a hard reset. It gives some errors, makes retires, and aparently
messes up the SCSI bus. I can mail more info if needed, sorry for not sending
it now, but I'm not at work.

Is this a known problem?
