I did file a bug, A flash drive is very common and this type of problem needs attention.

What is interesting is that flashdrives of 4 gigs or less do not generate the conditions to cause the Panic Attack.

I also updated the bug. Perhaps something similar will occur with F16, unless fixed.

Don't bother. There's a bunch of similar bugs already, it's almost certainly
a dupe.  I think the plan is going to be to push a .38 reverting a change
to the scsi code that highlights these problems (thus papering over the actual bug)
and then getting a .39 pushed out asap.
