FS#5399 - X5 OF not aware of RB usb changes

Context:
I’m using one of the X5 CVS builds from last weekend (about May 13th),
with the dual booting bootloader (first version, I think).

Problem:
If I manage files with USB while under RB and subsequently boot into
the OF, it doesn’t reflect the filesystem changes.

I think there must be a flag that the OF USB program sets, so that
when the OF boots, it knows to do a filesystem scan. (The OF takes
ages to boot after I’ve attached a USB cable).

Ideally, RB should set this flag (or whatever) anytime the filesystem
is changed in a way visible to the OF file browser. If that’s
inconvenient, then I suggest that RB should always set it.

Additional comments about closing:  

This bug report is only valid in the context of dual booting. The dual boot bootloader is not official, so any bugs relating to it should be reported to its author, not here.

The preloader passes two flags to the OF: one is the RTC alarm and the other is always set to zero.

I’m not sure how the OF knows when to scan HDD for changes, but I guess it has to do with checking last access date;
The entire USB mode is handled by the ATA-USB bridge, so I don’t think there’s anything to do here.
