Failures Stop with DEBUG Enabled

I am running the hostap driver version 0.4.9 on an ARM processor with
188.8.131.52 kernel. I am using a generic prism 2.5 compact flash card with
firmware 1.7.4. I periodically have wlan0 failures with dmesg output 'hw
not ready'. This failure seems to occur most frequently when I transmit
large amounts of data to-and-from my ppp device.
Strangely, when I enable PRISM2_IO_DEBUG the problem does not occur.
Before I try to dig into the source code, I wonder if anyone knows why
enabling debug mode would eliminate the failure? What is done differently
when debug is enabled?
Any help is appreciated.
