I sent this to the netbsd-help list and got no response so I thought
I'd try here:

I just installed the latested 1.1 release (the official one).  I've setup
my disk with a dos partition and modified my disklabel so that partition
"g" is my dos partition.  I can mount the partition.  I can cd to the
partition and do an "ls".  However if I do a "mkdir" or "cd dos; ls"
my system crashes with the following message:

panic: allowbuf: buffer larger than MAXBSIZE requested

Has anyone else seen this?  Is there a fix?
