I've been using some FAT formatted USB sticks here, and no problem so 
far. You are un-mounting them before unplugging it right? If you can 
test it via the command-line as suggested, and confirm that it still 
corrupts the FAT tables, we'll need to report this bug with details to 
the FreeBSD team right away:


Its possible that mount_msdosfs is buggy in this case?
