Spurious change of permissions on a VFAT partition under SuSE 8.2
I've mounted my VFAT partitions under Linux (SuSE 8.2) and everything works just fine. The problem is that from time to time (mainly when I massively copy files to/from a VFAT partition), the filesystem changes to read only, although all the permissions are still set to allow me to write and I was still writing on it seconds before. I just get the error message telling me that the filesystem is read only.
A remount of the partition solves the problem, but it is extremely annoying.
Does anyone have an idea where the problem comes from?
