I think this makes sence because with Linux the HFS+ partition on my HD shows
up with the "where are all my files gone?" thing.  (Which BTW dropped me into
xmon when I vim'ed it...)  But the iPod did not show up with anything

Must be that the iPod is "pure" HFS+ when the other is a wrapper.

To quote a pointy eared character "Fascinating."

Thanks for the info,
