cardmgr: Endless loop with SD-Card

with some help the problem with the PCMCIA-Slot driven by 
a Ricoh Co Ltd RL5c476 II  was solved (see the kernel bug 4501). 

But now there is another problem: 

The SD-Card-Slot is driven by the same chip. Since there is only 
one PCMCIA slot, I guess the SD/MMC/MS-Slot takes the place of the
second PCMCIA slot.

As soon as I insert an SD-Card, the cardmgr goes into an endless loop:

rt_sigaction(SIGPIPE, {SIG_DFL}, NULL, 8) = 0
ioctl(3, 0xc0286440, 0xbffff800)        = 0
ioctl(3, 0xc0206411, 0xbffff880)        = 0
time([1114205033])                      = 1114205033
getpid()                                = 4533
rt_sigaction(SIGPIPE, {0xb7f77a70, [], 0}, {SIG_DFL}, 8) = 0
send(0, "<30>Apr 22 23:23:53 cardmgr[4533]:   Common memory region at 0xb7ecb8d6: Generic"..., 88, 0) = 88

50% of CPU is occupied by cardmgr, the other 50% by syslogd receiving
those messages. The full message is 

cardmgr[4533]:   Common memory region at 0xb7ecb8d6: Generic or SRAM

Any idea?
