It is the oldest SCSI transport code at all. I did write it first in August 1986,
long before Adaptec came out with ASPI.

Do you believe that the conversion from your *.cpp code to the
.c version introduced the bug?

I am quite sure that I did convert the code setp by step.

As I cannot check the code (I don't have such a drive), could you please
try to test the code?
