I have had several responses indicating that no-one else has this problem.
I have gone back to square 1 again, souped up the SCSI card to do wide again 
and everything seems OK.

Maybe I did do a "newfs /dev/sd1?" instead of using the raw device (/dev/rsd1?)


PS I will go back to the bunker.

I think I read recently that doing a "newfs" on a wide SCSI disk with an 
Adaptec 2940UW hangs the system (a deadlock ?)

I can concur with this and confirm that turning off wide negotiation in the 
SCSI setup seems to correct this.

3 questions :

1)  Does anyone have any more info on this
2)  Is there updated driver code I can include in the kernel build
3)  Having "newfs"-ed, would turning back on wide negotiation lead to more 
problems similar to the "newfs" problem
