You may be right, but I have done quite a bit of testing of the new
kernel code with fusefs-ntfs and it had not given me any problem until
this one that bit the day I upgraded fusefs-libs.. It was pretty
nasty, but runnig a disk check on Windows fixed the problems though I
lost all files copied to that system since the problem cropped up. Irt
was part-way through a transfer of about 20 files totaling 150 or 200

I should mention that the files were all copied over a network that
was performing poorly due to a memory leak in the router. I can't see
how that could have been tied to the problem, though.

I'll upgrade fusefs-lib again tomorrow, but I'm moving this weekend
and getting things ready to go, so I probably will not be able to do
much testing.
