I do not agree with the following change that was placed into 99-258r0. This
only adds in another exception that I have to look for and I see no good reason
to allow it.

The conditions stated in 99-179r5 for terminating other SEND DIAGNOSTICS
commands while a background mode self-test is in progress allowed a command with
the SELFTEST bit set to one to execute and prohibited SES SEND DIAGNOSTICS
commands (which are pretty much the only commands SES has).  This was modified
to prohibit SELFTEST=1 and allow the SES uses of SEND DIAGNOSTICS.

Bye for now,
George Penokie
