SubjectProblems with UMSDOS and -o conv=auto (1.3.99)
Dear Linux kernel readers: (and Jacques and Linus)

I am running kernel 1.3.99, with UMSDOS. Because I wanted to avoid
having ^M's visible in my files when editing them with vi, I tried the
-o conv=auto mount option.

I find that if my volume is mounted conv=auto, then doing a umssync
causes EMD file errors. Catting files after this also causes problems.

I am including a transcript to demonstrate. My ums utilities are the
ones that came with Slackware 3.0. I'm guessing that this is caused by
the --linux-.--- also undergoing translation, which has to be a Bad Thing.

Is this a known problem? Is there anything I should or shouldn't be
doing, or know about?

Many thanks in advance for all replies.
