	It's definitely a non-standard Additional Sense Code Qualifier.  I
have seen stuff like that before.  I've got some Quantum Fireball ST (i.e.
'Stratus') drives that spit out 0x04, 0x0b when they want to be spun up.
I guess some vendors are fond of making up their own error codes.  (And in
this case, the error code wasn't documented anywhere.)

	Perhaps.  Just out of curiosity, what kind of disk is it?
