is this the thing that would cause the disappearing files problem?  I 
have tried something similar to your fix, but for my own drive, which 
reports as:

scsibus0 at esp0
probe(esp0:0:0): max sync rate 4.03Mb/s
esp0 targ 0 lun 0: <IBM, 0663L12, 1012> SCSI2 0/direct fixed
sd0 at scsibus0: 1003MB, 4119 cyl, 5 head, 99 sec, 512 bytes/sec

so I added:

        {T_DIRECT, T_FIXED,
          "IBM     ", "0663L12         ", "",     SDEV_AUTOSAVE},
