The biggest problem is, that we have no time to investigate the issue and 
it is no problem on the Windows-platform (because of a different call 

It has nothing to with the I2C-gating used. It is a basic problem of doing 
I2C while streaming is enabled. Not 100% what is exactly the problem.

I filed the problem to the correct guys at DiBcom - they will see (sooner 
or later).
