That's true, and I don't know of a way around it (made the same mistake
way back on the Pismo).

But IMHO the point is that MOL, and by extension the OS and apps running
within it, can't access any parts of the disk unless you allow it to.
Did you let it access the whole disk? Or is/was there a bug which would
allow to circumvent this restriction?
