SubjectMSDOSFS misfeature

I've played a bit with the MSDOS filesystem and found that when
it scans a directory, it doesn't stop on first entry starting with
zero byte, which causes it to show invalid files on some not so
cleanly formatted disks. I'm not pretty sure it's OK to have
garbage after the first empty directory entry, but the DOS itself
permits it, allowing implementors of disk utilities to misuse it.
Any ideas?
