Certain functionality appears to be broken with the msdos filesystem.  With a usb pen drive (either uhci or ehci) I can read and write files but if I attempt to unarchive /etc it will cause my system to lock up without a trace or going to debug.

This could be an issue with USB.  I do not have another type of device with an msdos filesystem to verify.
/etc/malloc.conf is a symlink to "aj"

mount an msdos filesystem to /mnt
cd /
tar cf - etc | (cd /mnt; tar xvf -)

system locks up on me every time.
