So the drive is happy (unless you've power cycled since it happened in
which case try and grab the next one).

A single odd timeout/reset/reissue is most likely just noise. SATA has
full CRC checksumming on the data and commands so is robust and can
accept them - they just take time to discover. PATA you shouldn't really
be seeing them on a sane machine but the data transfers (the fast bit)
are also CRC protected.
