Do you have a dump of the root sector (plus additional eventual extended

This is a very good point. We should have a look at the probing code in
the kernel because apparently the problem doesn't exist there.

It may not exist because the MSDOS partition detection is specific
enough to reject Atari partition tables. But still, compare the kernel
partition parsers to see what may be missing.

Which would mean that the kernel probes for DOS partition tables before
Atari partition tables, wouldn't it?
