Interesting.  I installed the firmware, and although it hasn't helped
my particular issue (and it's behaving identically to 1.10), it hasn't
crashed my environment.  On the other hand, my failures occur fairly
early in the initialization so the problem may be further into startup
than I have gotten with my device.  I am running 8.04 with the latest
kernel and v4l-dvb code.

Does it happen right after you plug the device in, or does it not
occur until you start a video application?

If it occurs immediately on connect, perhaps you could jump out of X11
to the console before plugging it in, to see if there is any panic
output prior to the reboot.

Also, I can't think of why this would happen, but could you send the
md5sum of your firmware file so we can make sure it wasn't corrupted?
