Did you compare the two ROM versions that exist? IIRC, they differ only by a
single SEI command, that was missing in the original version. Plus a few
patches to make space for this single missing byte.

I doubt you can assign a specific problem like yours to *this* bug. I'd
rather expect that it makes the drive behave unreliably in some (rare?)
circumstances only.
