Sure, no problem Christian!

BTW, I just updated my system and got this qemu version:
>>> QEMU emulator version 2.5.0 (Debian 1:2.5+dfsg-5ubuntu10.11), Copyright (c) 2003-2008 Fabrice Bellard
but the issue is still there:
>>> qemu-system-x86_64: /build/qemu-iZpOAh/qemu-2.5+dfsg/block/vvfat.c:2290: commit_direntries: Assertion `!strncmp(s->directory.pointer, "QEMU", 4)' failed.

However, downloading and running the patched version you mentioned above from:
>>> https://launchpadlibrarian.net/316972847/qemu-system-x86_2.5+dfsg-5ubuntu10.13_amd64.deb
does work perfectly!

Thanks Christian and don't hesitate to let me know once it gets accepted and included. I'll "apt-get update" my system and let you know the outcome.

Again, thanks,
Rolando
