No, mine doesn't work either.  I've reported and asked several times here,
but never got replies (other than: use gdb.. duh)

See, eg,

    I've never gotten my floppy drive to work under Linuxppc, it works fine
    under MacOS.  When accessing the floppy, it sounds ok, but the close ()
    system call doesn't return.  After this, the fd0 device can't be accessed
    again because it's busy.  The process can't be killed.
