Thanks for your experience. That rules out a few things.

With respect to the download problem, I doubt the firmware
version has anything to do with the driver version. It's just a
pile of bits that needs to be sent to the card. One set of bits
shouldn't get more or less errors than another.

If something did break recently, I'd agree that the driver on
the kernel end changed (presumably in the downloading section.)
If so, and if you have a backend only box, then you could
downgrade easily (that is, without worrying about, for example,
the nVidia driver version like me.)
