Same for me by the way.

Yea, maybe. But it's what the users demand: carry arround their little files. 

What I realy want to know is whether it is:
        (a) a hardware problem,
	(b) a PROM issue,
	(c) a kernel issue,
	(d) an mtools issue,
        (e) a debian issue, (already answered on debian-sparc -> negative)
        (f) work in progress and it works partially,
	(g) work in progress but no success in sight,
        (h) a secret kept by sun, they must be beaten,
	(i) absolutely unfixable and everybody ignores the hassle,
	(j) nobody is realy interested in that but me.
