A buffer overflow in the ext2 module, located into the
Open_Dir(struct i_node* inode) routine, can compromise
the system, rewriting the memory area where are placed
the shell commands!!!

    The problem was in a bad allocation of the pointer
    ext2_file_name. Now the problem has been fixed. For now you
    can find the correct version in the CVS repository. No
    patches will be released because the ext2 fs support is not
    included in the latest kernel stable version... You must
    wait the 0.08.00 version... :(
