[Oberon] Experiment with FatFS usage.

This is a brief report of one of my experiments in case 
anyone is interesed.

I have 1248 files in an AosFS partition in a CF card.
A partition in another CF card was formatted with this command 
in Debian Linux.
mkfs.vfat -F 32 -n Work -v /dev/sdd2
Although the parameter requested FAT32, mkdosfs produced a FAT16 filesystem.

My 1248 files were sent to the Linux system and there copied to the 
FAT partition on the CF card.

This command was put in SYS:Oberon.Text to have the working partition 
mounted automatically and the system was rebooted with the FatFS card 
FileSystem.Mount MY  FatFS IDE1#2 ~

Then two Texts were opened and an attempt was made to copy 
three lines from one Text to the other.  A photo of the 
resulting screen is visible here.

The picture illustrates that when MR+MM was applied to 
copy the three lines,
"2013-07-17 Wednesday;

pe.ebay.nc 5:42-"
the target text received these four lines.
"2013-07-17 Wednesday;

pe.ebay.nc 5:42-
2013-07-17 Wednesday;"
The first line was duplicated after the last and the word "Wednesday" 
was cast in fresh "look".  

No doubt the explanation is simple enough but for now it eludes me.  
As always, ideas are welcome.

Regards,                 ... Peter E.
