The crawler is well known to go berserk like this when for example the
mmc is ext[23] and it has a loop of directories made with symlinks (it
doesn't have to be a tight loop). A typical example is having a rootfs
on the mmc.

You should be able to kill the crawler with the utility dsmetool (stops
the respawning).

And please file a bug if there isn't one opened already.

It would be about time that we support something else than vfat :-/

(That was my opinion, don't take it as a nokia statement ;-)
