I'm using it too on MS-DOS (for both read and write access) and it didn't  
corrupt anything yet. The way DOSLFN is implemented however is messy; it  
depends on DOS's behaviour (it was developed on MS-DOS 6.22 and 7.10).  
Either DOSLFN depends on something it shouldn't, or the FreeDOS kernel  
fails to behave similar to MS-DOS somewhere. (Or both.) A FreeDOS kernel  
developer would have to work through the DOSLFN source to check this.
