I only see this problem when my FAT is configured to use 512
bytes per logical sector.
The problem does not appear if I use a larger sector
size by using mformat with the argument "-S 3", even though
I am allocating sectors 8193 to 14592.

What could cause this hole in the second allocation table?

Thank you,

Unfortunately, I couldn't reproduce this problem. Maybe the problem depends on some very specific geometry settings? (number of heads, number of sectors?).

Could you maybe send me an image which exhibits the problem (second FAT not updated when copying a file which falls on these clusters), or, if not possible, mail me a sequence of commands which produce this problem starting from an empty filesystem.
