Default SERIOUS warning,or SERIOUS bug? "Imminent disk failure!".Ubuntu9.10.

Yesterday on Ubuntu 9.10(completely updated) suddenly I received the

warning:"Imminent disk failure!",it seems was gdu-notifier(or so) that

generated the warning.Unfortunately smartmontools does not do an effective

test on this disk Iomega Prestige mobile(not on smartmontools database etc.).

so running Solaris,Ubuntu9.04,from the same HDD I do not receive any

warning and now any time I run Ubuntu9.10 there is that warning.

The HDD has 1 month and Iomega drives seem to be quite reliable,so

probably this is a bug.Besides smartmontools,are there other ways to test*

the disk?(since I do not have installed Windows or Mac the Iomega tools are

useless to me).
