The driver is probably not waiting long enough for some phase change,
and then leaving the device busy on the SCSI bus.  The next time it
tries to select a device, it will find the bus stuck busy and reset.
(That's my best guess, anyway.)  

I think the new driver deals with this better, by the way...
