SubjectSupermount hang

Not sure if this is a well known problem, but I patched a stock 2.0.25
kernel with the supermount 0.4c patch for 2.0.23 and up and rebooted. I
added the example lines from supermount.readme to /etc/fstab and then
started playing. First, as a user, I played around with the floppy
drive, inserting and removing it and doing ls type things. Then, I
tried to access the floppy as another user and got a permission denied
message. Looking at the directory, I saw that it was owned by the last
user to access the floppy, mode 700. This is ok, but when I did (as
root now) an ls of the floppy drive, the machine hung completely. The
floppy light was on, but nothing got written to any logfiles (or even to
the screen.) Did I do something bad? I.e., is it not a Good Thing for
multiple users to be accessing the floppy sequentially?
