$ dd of=trash.img bs=1M count=0 seek=50
$ mkfs.ext2 -F -b 4096 trash.img
$ settrans -cp trash /hurd/ext2fs `pwd`/trash.img
$ cd trash
bash: cd: trash: Translator died

Console: ``ext2fs: [...]/trash.img: panic: get_hypermetadata: disk size (1753088 bytes) too small; superblock says we need 52428800''.


$ settrans -ca trash /hurd/ext2fs `pwd`/trash.img
$ ls trash/

... works.
