afacli: disk show defects and "Grown Defect List Not Found" error

Howdy,

I'm getting a very nice set of errors in dmesg and /var/log/messages 
whenever I run "disk show defects" in afacli (full errors pasted 
below). Any ideas what's causing this? Would a mismatch between afacli 
version (2-7.1) and firmware (2-7.0) account for this?

Is upgrading the firmware on the Perc 3/di (on a 2650) - by using the 
boot disk created from support site - sufficient, or will I have to 
muck with the linux drivers (RH7.3) as well?

thanks,
Jeff
