Description of problem:
I'm trying to 'xzcat' or 'dd' raw sd card images to my 8GB SDHC (ADATA) via the 4WORLD USB2.0 SD card reader and Fedora get's frozen during the writing (Window manager somehow works, but the applications are frozen/not redrawing. Only hot-unplug of the reader helps. Unplugging the card from the reader doesn't help.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Frozen state shortly after the command is entered (the time differs)
No frozen states.

3.2.6-3 is rather old. Please try the 3.4.2 kernel update and let us know if it's better.
The problem disappeared with 3.3.8-1.fc16.x86_64, but it's possible the issue appears after a while (when unplugged and plugged in several times, etc.). You can close this bug and I'll reopen if I experience the same again.
