Bad blocks?  On a _SCSI_ drive?  The SCSI drives I've tried (all were various
CDC/Imprimis) all handle the bad blocks internally and present an error-free
appearance to the "outside world" (i.e., the SCSI bus).

Did I just get lucky, or did Larry get stuck with a less-than-wonderful drive
of some kind?
