PERC 3D/i Problems

I have a number of PE1650's in the office running Linux and the drives
are configured as raid 0. My problem is this: under heavy disk useage
the controller appears to die. This is pretty consistant. Both
machines will have an endless buffer of I/O errors, but if you check the
drives individually (via bios or sformat in another machine) they come
up clean, no bad blocks, no random errors. Only when I put them into a
machine w/ an Adaptec Raid controller will I see these results.
I've tried kernels 2.4.18 through 2.4.23-pre7 and all have the same
problem. Is there an unhandled NMI that the kernel is missing? Or, is
it just the driver doesn't fully support the 3D/i?
