Has anyone made any progress on figuring out what the real reason for 
this issue is, in the first place? Is it the device firmware, or the 
software on the Linux side? Do Windows users have the same problem?

I think it makes more sense to try to solve the issue than to spend time 
on a clever (but still fallible) workaround. The lockup problem is the 
sole reason I haven't bought one or two PD-PVRs. If my wife were to miss 
Dancing with the Stars due to a zero-length recording, I'd be in deep 
kaka :-).
