sure, since the beginning I've been using that option plus some other I 
found around, e.g. "pci_csc=0" and booting with  "pci=biosirq", but 
nothing really helped.

indeed I guessed so, in the PC where everything works fine the card has 
been given IRQ 5 and no problem ever showed up, here for some reason I 
get IRQ 19 and this odd behaviour. Probably the MB has some quirk? It is 
a dual CPU MB, maybe this collides somehow with the Ricoh card?

the log I reported was obtained using that option and that module  :-(
