Re: NTFS problems.

:When unmounting an ntfs partition (XP Pro), my machine locks up.  The
:serial debugger spews out lots of neat info that I have no understanding
:of :-)

    Ok, I'm getting closer.  There are two problems.. first, it looks like
    you are loading ntfs as a module.  Try building it into the kernel
    itself.  Second, if it's possible to get a kernel core dump that would
    help a huge amount.  The stack trace is broken but I can get the correct
    trace from a core dump.

    Another alternative would be to construct a NTFS partition that 
    demonstrates the crash that I can then download and mount/umount 
    via the vn device to reproduce the crash on my side.

    There are a lot of holes in the NTFS code, unfortunately.  I am still
    trying to find a smoking gun.
