I've now received an MMC which triggers this bug. The FAT file system on 
this MMC is corrupted.  I.e. you would see in dmesg messages about FAT
errors and the crawler has some files open which names are complete
(>200 bytes long) garbage.  Most of the MMC contents seemed OK though
and I think that's why it was mounted.

Please check whether all the file names on your MMC look alright and
fsck it.   If this doesn't cure the problem, more information about
the problem is needed.
