Odd.. Have you tested whether it works Windows tools? I would assume it
has to because current Intersil drivers use RAM downloading and that
requires access to PDA data).

You can extract RAM downloadable images from the recent Windows drivers.
This has been discussed couple of times in the past on this mailing
list. In addition, I think the extracted images are available somewhere.
Google is your friend..

Yes, but I would prefer to get at least one more report of the same
issue (i.e., another card having the same off by two offset) and a
report of successful RAM/flash download first.
