Hi Erik:

I applied your patch to 2.4.23 and it solved the problem. No more lost
clusters. All data stays where it belongs.

I'll test it for a few days and get back to you later.

Thank you very much.


For those who play with vfat filesystems now:

I noticed that fsck.vfat just pretends to repair a _mounted_ vfat
filesystem. You have to unmount it, so it is actually repaired. An error
message would be appropriate here. I'll contact the dosfsck maintainer,
but I thought telling you might avoid confusion.
