    Somewhat similar vein, but a different set of symptoms, I've seen a
    RedHat box not see that the CF card changed...
    (USB SanDisk CF & SD reader, also using only CF cards.)

    insert 128MB CF card.
    everything is ok.
    remove 128MB CF card, still see 128MB partition
    insert 256MB CF card.
    see 128MB partition.
    (based on /proc/partitions)

    I've not followed this up to figure out why yet.
    You might check that situation to see if yours is related at all.
