 With XO-4:

 ok copy u:\olpc.fth ext:\


 ok emacs int:\boot\olpc.fth

 sometimes result in crashes (ok prompt never returns), and after the
 crashes the target filesystem is corrupt (ext3 group descriptors are
 corrupt).  It's more likely to happen with a large file like a vmlinuz
 than a small file like an olpc.fth.
