PLX problems with old Prism cards

I have changed the card I had on my plx adaptor with an older one, these are
the versions of the card:

NIC: id=0x8002 v1.0.0
PRI: id=0x15 v0.3.0
STA: id=0x1f v1.5.6

When I load the hostap_plx module everything is fine, card is initialized
ok, no errors at all, ...

But then, when I try to send commands to the card, like setting an essid
other than the default, I get errors like this one:

hfa384x_cmd: entry still in list? (entry=c02822a0, type=0, res=0)
hfa384x_cmd: command was not completed (res=0, entry=c02822a0, type=0,
cmd=0x0002, param0=0x0000, EVSTAT=0000 INTEN=e09f)

The hostap I'm using is version 0.1.3 with the patch that Pavel had sent me
to fix the problems on soft reboot with cards on a plx adaptor, I have
tested with a card with NIC: id=0x8003 v1.0.0 and the very same PRI and STA
firmware and it works ok, but card id=0x8002 doesn't. This 0x8002 card, an
USR2445 card, works ok when tested with the same hostap version on a pcmcia

Any ideas on what could be going on here?
