Basically, there is an interrupt delivery problem to your card.
To fix this in my World (ASUS MoBo, Debian, builtin kernel
PCMCIA, Yenta Socket driver), I _also_ had to turn USB off
at the BIOS level.  There was some really bad interrupt sharing
that was taking place, and that fixed it.  That and the
setting of PCIC=yenta_socket in /etc/defaults/pcmcia.
