Description Matthias Kruspe 2001-05-13 18:40:34 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [de] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

Description of problem:
When I use the program ksysctrl and click at the Refresh button, the hard
disc activity raises very heavy. After that I get various messages about
damaged file systems. Can't reboot the system normally. Must do a hard
reset. After that i get kernel panics and cant mount the filesystems. The
partition table and a ms-windows-system at the same disc are also affected.
Maybe there is a bug in the scsi-interface. (I only use SCSI, no IDE)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start ksysctrl
2.click refresh

Actual Results:  heavy damage to the filesystem

Expected Results:  re-scanning the scsi-chain and refreshing the data shown
