Bug#458451: kdat - cannot mount ide travan

package: kdat
version 2.0.1
operating system: (stable) 2.6.18-5-amd64

I have a Travan 10/20 Gb tape, which is accessible using mt. However, KDat cannot open the device. I have given kdat the device name as ht0 under "settings". "mt -f /dev/ht0 tell" reports that the unit has a 512 byte block size, but kdat settings will only accept 2 digits.

dmesg |grep ht0
ide-tape: hdd <-> ht0: Seagate STT20000A rev 8A51
ide-tape: hdd <-> ht0: 1000KBps, 6*54kB buffer, 9720kB pipeline, 108ms tDSC, DMA

william@geeves:~$ which kdat
william@geeves:~$ dpkg --search /usr/bin/kdat
kdat: /usr/bin/kdat

Description: a KDE tape backup tool
 KDat is a tar-based tape archiver. It is designed to work with multiple
 archives on a single tape.

  * Multiple archives on the same physical tape.
  * Complete index of archives and files is stored on local hard disk.
  * Selective restore of files from an archive.
