Question 3CXFE575CT not being detected properly

I'm trying to get my 3CXFE575CT cardbus card to work under
redhat 6.2, which was working previously with a 3cfe575tx
cardbus card just fine.  When I insert my new card, I get the
following message in /var/log/messages:

...cardmgr[896]: initializing socket 0
...cardmgr[896]: unsupported card in socket 0
...kernel: cs: cb_alloc(bus 32): vendor 0x10b7, device 0x5257
...cardmgr[896]: no product info available

cardctl ident returns the following:

Socket 0:
  product info: "3Com Corpobation", "3CCFE%75CD", "LAN Cabdbuc Cabd", "0 4"
 function: 6 (network)

(note, the mispellings were duplicated)

I'm not able to get any sort of manfid info at all, and when I
do insert the above stuff returned by cardctl ident as version
information for the card in the config file, it still doesn't
get recognized upon insertion.  Every other card I have,
cardbus or no, that I insert into the slot gets recognized
correctly and the logs show a manfid and correct product info
for them.

I've tired changing the unreset_delay to 300 in the CORE_OPTS,
out of desperation, but that didn't help.

Can anybody help me determine what I need to do to get at the
information on the card so I can even begin trying to get it
recognized properly?

None Looks to me like a simple hardware fault

Notice that the errors are a subset of the characters marked '^'.
The errors all consist of zeroing out bit 0x10 in these positions.  It
appears to me that one data pin of the card (out of 32) is not making
a connection.  Since you say other cards (including a 3CFE575TX) work
fine, I think the card itself is at fault.
