Has anyone else had MSDOSFS problems in the last few days?  I'm running
a July 31 -current/i386 system (binaries and kernel), and whenever I try to
cp a file from a NetBSD partition to an MS-DOS filesystem the machine hangs
and I have to do a hard reset.

The MS-DOS filesystem is resident on an IDE drive, so it's possible that this
is a bug with my drive and the wd driver, but I've never had problems with
it before and I was able to boot from a root partition on the same IDE drive
last night with no problems.

Anyway I thought I would post here and see if this is a common problem before
I submit a bug report.

On a related note, does anyone have any idea if Daytona's (and Chicago's,
since they supposedly use the same scheme) long file names on FAT partitions
will interfere with the NetBSD MSDOSFS driver, or are they completely
transparent?  I know that the driver doesn't see the LFNs but I wonder if
there are any potential conflicts here....
