For this you require the TOSFS that is not compiled into 1.15.7 BETA. If
you like to use things like Betados or Metados you have to live with the
TOSFS forever.

This is related to the semphore locking code for nonblocking operations
that everybody want. The spin xfs you have just deadlock with the 1.15.7
BETA due to this code for the active application.

You can use an older FreeMiNT version or deactivate the locking code and
recompile the kernel or update Spin to the current beta if this possible.
