Well, it _is_ broken here.  Especially, when changing from floppy A
to B on a single-drive system, back and forth, if VFAT is enabled on
only one of the drives.  That kills Thing (from desktop) and boots
your out of Bash (from CLI).

But why should we have to force media-change detection, while 
other OS apparently handle it smoothly and transparently?
