I haven't looked again but from the previous logs I got the impression
that saned really requested authorization. So I don't think it's a net
backend fault. saned crashed for some reason. I thought it was hp
backend (or scsi or whatever) crashing but it may be also saned
itsself. On the other hand, there is no similar report.
