I have been told that if some host computers find a narrow SCSI device on
a wide SCSI bus, the computers will only talk narrow SCSI to all devices on
the bus including any wide bus compatible devices.  Does anyone know if
this is true and if it is true, for which computers and which interfaces
is it true?
