This is a new bug, introduced by my fix for the previous bug. However, this driver supports a wide range of cards and this new bug only affects some of them. I have created bug report #595554 to track this. Please can you test my attempted fix for this - either: 1. Get the fixed module <http://people.debian.org/~benh/3c59x.ko> and the signature file <http://people.debian.org/~benh/3c59x.ko.asc>, verify my signature with gpg, and then load the module: rmmod 3c59x && insmod 3c59x.ko or 2. Rebuild the kernel with the patch <http://people.debian.org/~benh/3c59x-Fix-deadlock-in-vortex_error.patch> following the instructions at <http://kernel-handbook.alioth.debian.org/ch-common-tasks.html#s4.2.5>, install it and reboot.
