I have tried now the firmware update on a Windows PC (fortunately I could reach a destination where a Windows PC was available) which was very strange. After recognizing 4 to 6 new mass storages and mobile devices I could install the Three Data Manager and it showed a notice that an update is available. However it refused with the download. Anyway after restart the message was gone and it showed the firmware version 11.604.21.00.156.
I then manually went to the Three site in Austria (where I am located) and found a firmware update package named "E160Update_11.604.21.00.156.B409". Unfortunately the last portion of this very short version number is not displayed in the Data Manager software so I did not have an idea whether I already had the build 409 or not. Anyway I downloaded the update and installed it.

Now my E160G which shows up in lsusb as E220 (that's why I am writing this here ;-) ) even works with the current release kernel of Karmic (2.6.31-14-generic #48-Ubuntu) like a charm! (at least from what I noticed so far after 3 short tests). In the weekend I will test with the different other kernels.
