A bug was filled both with the kernel (http://bugzilla.kernel.org/ - no 3741) 
and with debian (as I said below)

Unfortunately I don't think it is patchable.  The drive was clearly 
interrupting relating to a command that (from the kernel's perspective) had 
already completed properly so time ago - and in the middle of the next 
command that was being processed.  This should not have happened according to 
the IDE ATAPI specifications.  The drive was not performing correctly.

I suspect that its a firmware issue with the drive - it was entirely 
consistent, occuring on one specific command.  Unfortunately I could not find 
a way of notifying cyberdrive about it.
