Unless the bad things are irreversible this should not be the case.
AFAIR I always took care to remove the module before formating.

And it doesn't explain why I have the problem when I copy a set of files
and why I doesn't have it with another set of files. Even stranger when
I first copy the good set of files, then umount, remount, remove the
good set of files and copy the problematic set of files then it's ok.

But if I copy the problematic set of files directly during the first
mount after the partitioning/formating then I have the problem exposed
in my previous mail.
