JFFS2 doesn't detect end of space on flash device instead breaks kernel

      The JFFS2 on my flash doesnot report back to me
end of space on my flash, instead I get a kernel oops
message and sometimes the kernel hangs. This is when I
am trying to copy a file which is of larger size than
there is space on device.

       When I use the same method with JFFS it reports
to me end of space on device and comes out cleanly. 

        Is it a problem with the tool 'mkfs.jffs2' I
am using or is it problem the jffs2 image since I am
building this on a host PC
