    I am interested in this ntfs report. Which way round was the loopback file?
    I.e. did you mount: mount -t ntfs -o loop somefile_on_a_non_ntfs_partition
    or did you mount: mount -t some_file_system -o loop

    Can you send me the errors produced? If there is an oops, please decode and
    send it, too.

    Also it may be useful to have the debug output from ntfs (depending on what
    the errors/oops say - they may be sufficient to pinpoint the problem), i.e.
    enable debugging when configuring the kernel, and then as root do: echo 1 >
    /proc/sys/fs/ntfs-debug. Note this will absolutely flood you with debug
    output so the system will run slow as hell... So it is best to only enable
    debug messages just before the error occurs if that is possible.
