I am using submount 0.9 to manage USB floppy drive in
Fedora 2 test version 3 (kernel version: 2.6.5-1.327,
OpenOffice 1.1.1). If click the floppy folder icon
which link to the mount point of floppy, then double
click a document (WORD format), it works well when I
save to floppy. But if I create new document and click
"Save" button to save to floppy, OpenOffice just hang
at the "Save as" dialog.
I tested save to hard disk, it's OK.
The procedure to reproduce the bug is as followed:
1) Click OpenOffice write icon to launch OpenOffice;
2) Edit something; Click "Save" button, then "save as"
3) Select the mount point of SONY USB floppy (in my
case is /mnt/floppy1, mounted with subfs), type the
name of file, click "Save" button in the dialog;
The OpenOffice seems freeze at the "Save as" dialog.
Sometime it cause whole system hang.
I am wondering maybe serveral thread try to access the
floppy at the same time cause OpenOffice hang. Can we
fix it in subfs?
