the latest kernel is 2.6.30 btw. Can you please test that one.

To be honest, I have never seen a chip from this manufacturer. SO I have
no experience with them. Where did you get that dongle from. I might
have to buy one of these.

Please redu them with hcidump -X -V since decoding by hand is way too
painful.
