I get this (debian 2.6.12-6 kernel) :

  ieee1394: sbp2: aborting sbp2 command
  scsi6 : destination target 0, lun 0
          command: cdb[0]=0x28: 28 00 07 0c 9d e8 00 00 08 00

Or stuff like it, both on my pegasos and on my titanium 1GHz powerbook. This
doesn't stop the disk from working though, altough i have not yet made
extensive tests, but any use of the disk is damn slow because of the above.
