Wayne you are probably right but the strange thing is that I can do the 
following without any error at all:

	$ cd /media/MOB1/m/test
	$ echo foo > .1.QKjE7e
	$ touch .1.QKjE7e

so it must be something tricky and I am just spending my first weeks 
with linux on my desktop (likely I have a little bit of a unix 
background and alot of expirience in programming though most of it in 
strange languages for microcontrolers)

Any ideas on how to investigate it?
