[tex-live] Problems with local /texmf on ntfs

Dear everyone! I have the following problem customizing my texlive
I want to include a personal texmf directory that lies on a ntfs
partition that is not the partition of the texlive installation. The
installation-path is /usr/local/texlive/
I have added the path to the custom directory to
TEXMFDATEN = /media/Data/Dateien/miktexpersonal//
This solution does not work completely. The file
./miktexpersonal/bibtex/bst/biblatex/biblatex.bst is found running tex
using the biblatex package.
However, the files
./miktexpersonal/tex/latex/biblatex/bbx/authoryear.bbx and the custom
style ./miktexpersonal/tex/latex/dai/bbx/dai.bbx can not be found.
Copying the whole folder like it is to my home directory and modifying
the entry in the texmf.cnf everything works fine. I have tried various
debug-commands that I found in the kpahsea-documentation, but they
didn't actually help me (for a post of the output and discussion (in
german) see http://www.golatex.de/viewtopic,p,10756.html#10756).
As everything works fine with the same directory-structure in my
home-directory, I suppose that there is some incompatibility with the
ntfs format of the other partition. Files are not compressed and don't
make problems under Linux. Has anyone any idea what I have done wrong or
how I can solve the problem? Tank You!

Why I want to do this? I have a MikTeX 2.7 installation and Windows XP
on the same system and want to use the same custom texmf on both
systems. As Windows doesn't read the EXT partition of the linux
installation, the directory has to be put on a windows-compatible partition.
