Could you send at support at linuxant.com the output of 'dumpdiag' please? 
Type the following in a root shell:

hsfconfig --dumpdiag

If the previous command crashes your machine, please try this one instead:

hsfconfig --dumpdiag --noprobe

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp ('hsfdiag.txt').
It'll help us solve the problem.
