PE2950 with adapted 39320A scsi card : card dump while using PV110T LTO2 tapedrive

Hi,

I'm having the following problem with my PE 2950 and PV110T LTO2 tapedrive :

At the end of my backup, I'm getting a Card Dump (see contents of 
/var/log/messages below).
My backupscript uses simple tar and mt command and runs fine on another 
machine with a DLT drive.

The scsi card is an adaptec 39320A - bought direct from Dell (came 
mounted with the server).

I'm running CentOS 4.4 on this machine, with the following kernel :
Linux cheetah.svr.woladm.bel.erba 2.6.9-42.0.8.ELsmp #1 SMP Tue Jan 30 
12:18:01 EST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Is there anyone on this list that has had these kind of problems before 
? As far as I know, I'm using the correct kernel-module for the card
aic79xx
Or should I use another one ?

What follows are the errors in /var/log/messages
and the output of lsmod

I hope someone on this recognizes the problem.

Thanks in advance,

regards,
Maarten
