Sad Hang when inserting card on Sony VAIO Z505S

I am having the problem described (by someone else) at <http://www.uglx.org/sony-hang.html>: my Sony VAIO Z505S hangs when inserting a PCMCIA card (specifically for a CD-ROM drive in my case). There are no beeps prior to the hang.

I am using pcmcia-cs-3.1.14 as shipped with Linux-Mandrake 7.1's updated 2.2.16 kernel.

I've tried all sorts of PCIC_OPTS, including the suggested fix on the uglx.org site and setting pci_irq_list=9, as well as narrowing the memory (as suggested by the PCMCIA-HOWTO in Section 3.5) to what Windows uses, but I always get the hang.

I can't find anything in my system logs immediately before the hang occurs. Here's what is logged on boot-up (with no card inserted):
