MO-Drive under 2.4.7 usinf vfat

Hi all,

I have just tested the new 2.4.7 kernel to see, whether it now works with a
MO-Drive using the vfat filesystem. Unfortunately it still doesn't. Mounting
a disk and writing to it is ok. However, when I try to read a file off the
disk, the program crashes with a Segmentation fault and I get a oops in the
messages file (see attachment). I tried ksymoops on this file, but either I
did something wrong or it couldn't analyse it.

I hope, this issue will be fixed soon cause I would like to switch over to
the 2.4 kernel series without scratching my set of MO-disks.


Btw, please answer by email as well because I think I got removed from the
mailing list somehow (or is it that quiet?).
