That's quite odd.. There shouldn't really be that kind of differences between Prism2 and Prism2.5/3..

Something wrapping around here?

This was the only difference I noticed here.. Apparently the driver tried to use smaller TX fid with this card. This should work, but maybe you should test with the same TX buffer size also with this card.

Have you tested latest CVS snapshot? It has removed the bogus is_symbol verification and first tries to allocate large buffer and only if that fails, it will try to get a smaller buffer (as a workaround for problems with Symbol cards).
