I have a question regarding using BREAK to reply to an 
OPEN_ADDRESS frame. Section 7.12 of the SAS spec
indicates that AIP, OPEN_ACCEPT, and OPEN_REJECT
are the responses to an OPEN_ADDRESS. However, in
the table - Connection Responses, BREAK is also shown 
as a response. Is this in error? or can anyone tell me
under what conditions a destination port would reply with
a BREAK instead of an OPEN_REJECT?
Thank You,
Steve Kemp
