I'm having trouble getting Amanda (2.6.1p2 from ports) to play nicely
with my hardware.

Devices are:
<HP Ultrium 3-SCSI Q25W>           at scbus0 target 1 lun 0 (sa0,pass0)
<HP 1x8 G2 AUTOLDR 2.80>           at scbus0 target 1 lun 1 (pass1,ch0)
connected via:
mpt0: <LSILogic SAS/SATA Adapter> port 0x9000-0x90ff mem
0xfe4fc000-0xfe4fffff,0xfe4e0000-0xfe4effff irq 16 at device 0.0 on pci2
mpt0: [ITHREAD]
mpt0: MPI Version=

os and number in question is:
FreeBSD 8.0-STABLE FreeBSD 8.0-STABLE #0: Tue Mar
 9 07:01:59 UTC 2010
svein at  amd64

Tapes are regular LTO-3 (HP C7973A).

amtapetype simply hangs (after writing 3-4 tps for 5 seconds, then
simple silence both on sa0 and console)

Has anybody run into this problem with FreeBSD8+mpt+autoloader?
