I spoke to Dell, but they don't have a newer firmware yet.  I've
reported the issue, and I guess that I'll have to see whether they
fix it at some point.

I the mean time I've nailed the tags in rc.local, so that they get fixed
at boot time.

    % cat /etc/rc.local    
    camcontrol tags da0 -N 119
    camcontrol tags da1 -N 119
