JFFS likes to have only one area of free space. When you did that, it ended 
up with two areas of free space - one in the middle of the 8MiB you copied, 
and obviously the extra 6MiB at the end. So it got very confused.

Don't do that then. :)

Actually, once we've started making it deal with erase blocks individually, 
keeping a list of free/full/dirty/etc. blocks, it'll be able to cope with 
that - but it'll get fairly confused if you change erase block size :)
