How does it break it? I really don't understand how NEWFATFS can break
anything at all, unless there's a bug somewhere.

I have never had any problems with older software and NEWFATFS, this
includes Imagecopy and Interface. Long filenames is a different matter
though, but you don't *need* to enable VFAT (or cache) even if you
*can* ;-)

If this really is the case then there must be something wrong with the
TOS-interface in NEWFATFS, I really can't see how it can cause any problems
otherwise. Fixing this (possible) problem is IMO a much better solution
than keeping TOSFS.
