NTFS problems.

What do you suppose the likelihood of the 'trash my system' bug being 
fixed in the NTFS code?

Last time I mounted an NTFS partition (few months ago) everything broke 
-- to the extent that I could no longer boot DragonFly -- and then I had 
to do a complete reinstall.  This wasn't much fun.  I'm kind of affraid 
to try it again.

Any ideas?

    Ok, I'm getting closer.  There are two problems.. first, it looks like
    you are loading ntfs as a module.  Try building it into the kernel
    itself.  Second, if it's possible to get a kernel core dump that would
    help a huge amount.  The stack trace is broken but I can get the correct
    trace from a core dump.
    Another alternative would be to construct a NTFS partition that 
    demonstrates the crash that I can then download and mount/umount 
    via the vn device to reproduce the crash on my side.

    There are a lot of holes in the NTFS code, unfortunately.  I am still
    trying to find a smoking gun.
