That was my problem before Linus' explainations via IRC (you can have
the log at http://bjorn.haxx.se/rockbox/irc/rockbox-20020725.log near
13h49). But, I think, it's only a temporary way of doing it, the best
one will be to implement the now famous file-write ;-)

For now, only 44 bytes are written in the 61 block, to have the
compatibility with the rtc block... But we have to fill the 44 bytes
first ;-)
