And I had no idea that would work... :) I just never did it that way,
I always just treat these things as real disks. It might be
interesting to know if you can make an image of the disk and re-write
it later to see if it works. If not, that might be a bug.

Those Alix machines look nice, fits right into a question I asked a
little while ago:

I still need to buy an i386 based low power machine to replace my
current i386 machine...
