This is really weird.

Pulled the git version this morning. Compiled and installed it and got 
the same problem.
I use the redhat startup script to start the target, and used a simple 
targets.conf, which creates a tape target.

Starting up normally (service iscsi-target start) works fine, no errors. 
Logging into the target goes fine as well, no problems
and I can use the virtual tape. However, any time I try the command 
tgtadm --op show --mode target gives the error:

tgtadm: can't send the request to the tgt daemon, Transport endpoint is 
not connected

When I start up tgtd empy (empty targets.conf) it starts up fine, 
although I am not able to show the targets with tgtadm.
When I run a script with the tgtadm commands to build up a vtl, every 
tgtadm command gives the error mentioned above.

Now, the weird part. When I start tgtd by hand (just tgtd, or tgtd -f 
-d8) it works fine. Functionally, the redhat.initd stuff
does exactly the same. Apart from switching tgtd offline, add 
targets.conf (using tgt-admin) and putting it only again.
When I do it "manually" I just stuff the targets in, without switching
