Report:

If I try to do a simple tar on the second streamer (/dev/st1) the machine cold-boots (no oops, no segfault, just zap) after varying amount of written data. I try to tar around 50GB and it does not manage this amount ever, I tried several times. If I disconnect /dev/st0 (BNCHMARK drive) and do just the same tar on /dev/st0 it works as expected.
As you can see /dev/st0 is connected to another SCSI-bus, so it should not interfer on the bus (termination issue or the like).
As it cold-boots without prior warning I have no good idea how to present valuable debug info.

Regards,
Stephan
