vfat is not working with ext3 patch



Hi all,

My system is :
kernel 2.4.8 with ext3-0.9.6 patch
e2fsprogs-1.22-2, mount-2.11g, util-linux-2.11f

And ext3 filesystem works fine, but when a vfat partition is mounted:

[fargo] [~] # mount /dev/hdd1 /mnt/tmp
[fargo] [~] # mount
/dev/hda1 on / type ext2 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/hdd1 on /mnt/tmp type vfat (rw)

everything looks ok till I try to access that partition. A 'cd' to the
directory /mnt/tmp causes an error of 'not a directory' so i can't access
to vfat partition. Switching to the unpatched kernel makes everything work
fine again. I asked Andries but he doesn't think is a mount problem, so
what do you think, is this a problem caused by ext3 patch or by vfat
filesystem ?


Thanks
