    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.
