I've created those same files and directories in my Fedora, also
symlinked from my hostfs and the filer's fine.  Nothing seems odd about
their attributes, and the parent directory has larger files.

Instead of the Desktop can you get to a command line and do

    *Ex Fedora

Here that looks to print out the results as HostFS returns them.  If
there's no lock up then it would suggest the issue is with RISC OS's

It would be very nice to be able to re-create the issue outside of your
machine.  I suppose we could alter hostfs to filter out chunks of the
host directory so it doesn't reach RISC OS and then you could experiment
with that to see if you can narrow down what it doesn't like.

Cheers, Ralph.
