Disabling IO port probing is a very bad idea unless you're very sure
about what you're doing.  My guess is that you've now got an IO port
conflict, which is causing reads and writes to the card to sometimes
have unexpected results.

Rather than disabling the IO probe, it would be much better to play
with the IO port windows in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts to find a setting
that doesn't cause a freeze.
