Well, it works for me here, but you knew that, of course. :-)

Do you have any further input?  Does fdformat still work?  Does
"fdread -I 1" return you a sector ID?

There weren't any commit so far until yesterday that was supposed to
affect the normal operation of floppies at all (only cosmetics and
additions).  Can you pin it down to which of the changes has broken it
for you?

Can you compile with options FDC_DEBUG, and then turn on debugging on
the drive?  In -current, you can do this with "fdcontrol -d1 /dev/fd0",
in older versions you need DDB for it.  Debugging output is huge and
unreadable, please send it to me privately, not to the list.

p.s.: If you'd sent me a Cc of this message, i would have responded
quicker.  I can't afford it to scan this list on a daily basis.
