Vivanco PCC USB 2.0 trips Dell Inspiron 2100's internal circuit breaker

Hello all,

I recently purchased a Vivianco Cardbus to USB 2.0 adaptor (Model no. 14359), which is listed as linux compatible at http://www.qbik.ch/usb/devices/showctrl.php?id=69.

Unfortunately as soon as I insert the card into the CardBus slot of my running Dell Inspiron 2100, the internal circuit breaker of my laptop trips. If I insert the card before powering on the laptop, the boot process makes it some way into the "Discovering Hardware" phase before tripping the circuit breaker. Presumably this is the point at which the OS attempts to initialize the card. The breaker is tripped even if I have no USB devices plugged into the adapter.

I am running Debian Sarge with a custom built 2.6.4 vanilla kernel.

Any ideas what could be going on here?
