[stgt] tgt reset on simple simulator

I dont use the bs layer at all, so the problem is not there.
I've added a dump_cdb call on target.c:abort_task_set. Sometimes I see
printouts as if WRITE(10) have been lost. Twice I've also seen
SYNCHRONIZE_CACHE(10) aborted. However sometimes nothing gets printed,
suggesting I'm aborting no cmd. Very strange.
I tried tracking all incoming unserviced requests to my code, and
print all these on abort_task_set, but I get nothing, verifying that
indeed my code is servicing all the requests it gets.

Could it be that the request gets lost somewhere up the code stack?
