No, I had similar results with a DLT2/20.  It appears to me that the
library automatically ejects the tape after any operation, and TSM
doesn't seem to like that.  I haven't been able to find a setting on the
library to disable this behavior.

I spent some tme with TSM support, who had me upgrade FW on the lib, but
that didn't help either.

As this was a test system, and I ran out of time to play, I abandoned
the effort (at least temporarily).

If I get more info, I'll pass it along...
