I just ran the same test on the linux box with the similar result.
How to reproduce the problem:

mkdir xxx
dd if=/dev/zero of=xxx/dummy count=966160
qemu -hda fat:xxx -cdrom cd.iso -boot d
(boots ok)

dd if=/dev/zero of=xxx/dummy count=966161
qemu -hda fat:xxx -cdrom cd.iso -boot d
(qemu could not open hard disk image 'fat:xxx')

Any clues how to fix the problem?
