#3556 assigned bug

KPartition keeps disk system module loaded

KPartition keeps the disk system loaded for no apparent reason.

This makes it impossible to replace a file system once an identified partition/image with it exists.

That's not a bug, but a feature. Not keeping the disk systems loaded would mean that for every partition operation you'd have to load and unload the respective disk system.

Replacing disk systems is intended to work based on node monitoring. All partitions associated with the disk system in question would need to be invalidated and rescanned. Care must be taken regarding mounted and busy partitions.

Whoever added node monitoring to the DDM apparently forgot to add that feature. :-)
