Reiser4 and metas :D

After the painstaking process of getting the reiser4 into the kernel and booting succesfully with it compiled in the kernel, I thought it would be a good ideea to see what it can do... Plus, I've read some stuff on the namesys home page, about the metas "directories", and what they can do

Onwards then... Ok... I did what everybody else is doing:
mkfs.reiser4 -qf /dev/hda6
mount -t reiser4 /dev/hda6 /mnt/aux
I copied a jpeg file, created a text file and a directory, chmoded them to -rwxrwxrwx, and then...
Alexx aux # cat test.txt/metas/uid
cat: test.txt/metas/uid: Not a directory
Alexx aux #
I'm using Gentoo and the latest kernel I could get my hands on so far (gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.9-r3). Did I do something wrong? Or am I mising some options? I'm begining to re-think the "Enable reiser4 debug options" option in the kernel config

Any ideeas? Anyone? Pretty, pretty please ?
