Well, that doesn't sound reassuring, does it?

Okay, those resets may happen without further consequences, but they're
disturbing nevertheless.

BTW, I'm preparing a hardware reorg, which will eliminate this controller
during this weekend.. Well, to be correct, the other is the one, that
really nags me for some time now (3ware 9xxx-8). Swapping both with one
Areca 1130, which performes _much_ better.
