Yes, I've discovered the same thing myself this evening.

I'm going to leave those blocks alone for the time being unless I get some more captures of those cylinders (doesn't happen very often) or someone submits a bug report which cannot be solved in any other way.

However, there is some good news.

I have fixed another bad sector by getting a valid capture of the cylinder containing it. I wasn't even aware that it had, in fact, captured properly until I compared the resulting data with the latest WIP disk image. The continual reappearance of the Retry button is so monotonous that it sometimes induces a kind of hypnosis, and in that state I didn't notice that the progress bar had skipped to the next (adjacent) bad track.

It's another trivial fix, leaving just four to go!
