Here's what we get from status:

scan    9       8       30

What are the other potential failure conditions - we're getting on_fail
called, but immediately sometimes rather than after the timeout.

No network collisions, and everything else has been working fine there. We 
tested sending an ISO across the lan and got 8MB/s.
