You have had a glitch with your library that has caused TSM to move an
empty scratch tape into the 'private' category without putting data on
it. This could have been caused by technical difficulties, or by someone
checking in a scratch tape with status=private (instead of
upd libv 3494lib1 I01448 status=scratch
If it is truly an empty tape (doesn't belong to a storage pool, and
isn't a db backup tape), it'll flip to scratch status.
