What do you mean by,
"I fill the NAND JFFS2 partition with data several times ..." ?

I presume the links you refer to are symbolic links (ln -s ...)

You should describe the procedure you use (including setting up the links,
and "filling the partition with data several times") and the problems you
observe, What exactly "stops working" - apart from access to files on the
affected partition(s) ?
