I'm running NetBSD-current with both an IDE drive and a SCSI drive.  The
IDE drive basically holds a 10MB root partition, from which I boot NetBSD.
The rest of my filesystems, including swap, reside on a SCSI drive.

Anyways, I have experienced no problems with "trash getting written onto
my partitions."  NetBSD-current has worked flawlessly with my setup, and 
I've had no problems that I could attribute to the wd driver.

Which partitions are you talking about?  Your NetBSD partition?  Or a
foreign filesystem partition?
