We all(?) see something like that, and it seems to be harmless. Nobody knows
what it says and where it does comes from. It is possibly related to
extended partitions. Because it does not cause any real problems, we have
chosen to close our eyes and ignore it :) If you can find out a fix for
that, we would be happy to include it.

Not at all.

Hoppala. This is the second time someone reports a crash. Obviously, the
floppy driver is a bit unstable. We should either make an attempt to update
our gnumach driver stuff a bit, or switch to oskit rather soon :)
I am afraid that most problems people report recently (various hangs and
crashes) are gnumach related.
