Howdy list,

I am having some odd behaviors with mounting FAT32 partitions.  The 
timestamp on the mount point changed to "Dec 31 1979" and the 
permissions changed to "d-------w-"  This is under NetBSD 2.0_beta.

Prior to mount:

shredder# ll | grep usb
drwxr-xr-x  2 root  wheel    512 Jul  8 10:06 usb

After mount:
shredder# mount_msdos /dev/sd0e /mnt/usb
shredder# ll | grep usb
d-------w-  1 root  wheel  16384 Dec 31  1979 usb

The HD is attached to a USB enclosure, but I am having the same issues 
with a HD that is attached to the internal IDE as well.  These two 
drives were formatted with FAT32 under Windows 2000.

Any ideas?
