Description of problem:
I've got a bunch of floppy disk images and I'm trying to loop back mount them and extract them but the loop back mounting is failing unless I add long pauses.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I've attached my script that I use to unpack the floppy disks.
Actual Results: Some of the floppys are mounted right away. Others take a 2 or 3 tries before I can mount them.
Expected Results: They all should have been mounted right away.

anything in dmesg when it fails ?
does it consistently fail on certain images ? can you point me at some of these
images if they're downloadable so I can try to repeat this ?
