Is this on an ohci controller?

I'm trying to track down mbr's problem also that appears to do the
same thing.  Have you tried doing an fstat before umounting the fs?
(There is a bug in msdosfs that doesn't sync the disk before unmount

This is wierd in that it's the second page of the second transfer.
The ohci can do up to 8k transfers in one TD, and then chain the TD's
together if a larger block sized is used.
