I wonder if you are using secondary firmware 1.8.0 with PDR 0x0413
removed.  Could you please try version 1.7.4 instead?  I have a gut
feeling that it's related.  Maybe prism2_srec should actually plug the
card memory if the PDR is outside the address range of the firmware.

Also it would be interesting to see what happens if you don't load the
firmware or don't complete the sequence, i.e. if only primary firmware is
loaded once or twice.
