That happens with SCSI if the cable connector is plugged upside
down.  For some reason I used to see it most with people messing with
SCSI CDROMs - probably because the cheap "paddle" SCSI boards that
came with them didn't have sheaths around the DIP header connectors.

Often the cable was neatly split in two!

The GOOD news is that usually no permanent damage resulted.

(It doesn't really matter if both devices provide termpower - It's not
good practise, but it usually works without damage.)
