mount.ntfs-3g using all CPU when I start a VM on ubuntu 8.10

Hi

I updated to ubuntu 8.10 today and since then when I start my usual vmware VMs I have the mount-ntfs-3g that is using all the CPU and therefore freezing any other activity. My VM images are on a VFAT file system.

Please not tell me that the solution is to move all my files to another type of partition (ext2 or whatever), I cannot do it and also I have used this setup for years without problems.

Did anyone solve it? Is the only solution to move back to ubuntu 8.04? There was always working like a charm.

Regards.

why do you use mount-ntfs-3g if your VMs are stored on FAT ?

Sorry sorry I was wrong.

The vmware images are on a NTFS partition and mount.ntfs-3g in ubunutu 8.10 takes all the CPU when I load a vmware image.

I since moved away from ubuntu 8.10 (to 8.04) and all is back working.

mount.ntfs-3g on ubuntu 8.10 has problems with big files.

and vmware happens to be using big files.
