I have a class 4 4 gig Kingston SDHC card (SD4/4GB). It has been partitioned with one ext3 partition which has Xubuntu installed on it. Occasionally the partition mmcblk0p1 disappears. A quick fdisk /dev/mmcblk0,n,p,1,1,123488,a,1,w fixes the issue and Fedora remounts the partition successfully. This only occurs while running OLPC's version of Fedora (when running off of the SD card it never loses the partition). I noticed it starting with build 653, and it is still happening with Joyride 1570, but it may be a problem for 650 as well, but I upgraded to 653 shortly after installing XUbuntu on the SD Card.
