Please, all of you, forget the "rm" -thing, it wasn't because of a write
protected disk, but another, now clarified issue. Sorry for the confusion.

But the unmounting-remounting works for me, when i need to sync the dir. struct.
i see with the actual one, with kernel 2.1.2

The "mdir" works, it always reads from disk, when called.
