Made a USB-Stick with "USB Startup Disk Creator" and used it for installation on another PC. After that, plugged in, but FAT32 partition didn't get recognized (USB stick 100% healthy, tested with H2testw):

BUT: USB stick still works! I can use it for installing Ubuntu.

SIDE-EFFECT: My mounted data-partition (registered in /etc/fstab) showed up twice (!!!) in Nautilus side pane when I plug in USB stick.

There are some serious problems!
