KNOWN ISSUES

Task attributes is incomplete (all tasks are treated as if they have the SIMPLE attribute.)

SCSI task management is incomplete.

NOP-In is incomplete.

The target never sends a NOP-In of its own accord.

Header and Data Digest in a discovery session are not implemented.

Out-of-memory situation leads to the system crash (There are still some out-of-memory bugs.)
