I'd say the problem is most probably cable-related. Especially
wide->narrow adapters should be treated suspiciously...

Also, auto-terminate won't always work well.

Perhaps there's room to stick in a simple cheap symbios 860 card, which
is narrow?  Otherwise, perhaps there are parameters for the module to
not do sync, or at least not so quickly, etc....
