Well, unless that's different than noted behavior before there were problems, 
that doesn't really indicate a bad drive any more than a drive/driver that 
doesn't support smartd.  Smartd doesn't work on most sata drives with the 
sata driver included in the stock CentOS kernel.

When I have seen smartd working, it starts fine but puts messages in the logs 
about drive problems when there are actual problems.
