Hello Dmitry,

want to comment on your observations, as I am using a Multiface II too...

can't confirm this. Works perfectly well for me. Did large recording
sessions with 8 channels on 96kHz lately. For this, I did several
test sessions on my desktop PC (AMD64 X2 with debian / 64Studio). The
recording sessions itself I did on a 32bit Core Duo laptop with Ubuntu
Dapper and a multimedia patched kernel.

same here, can confirm this.
But, on my desktop PC (with PCI card), power-cycling and the doing
hdsploader again works perfectly well.
