This seems pretty indicative of the bug described to me; sometimes it may not know what to do when it encounters a tape written in a different block size than is currently set on the drive. I've run out of tapes, but about to head down to put some more in, I should be able to report back in the next day or two if the hot-fix fixes mine.
