This could be a problem with the kernel modules, more specifically with the new firewire stack.

Please send us the output of

lsmod | grep 1394
lsmod | grep firewire

I believe that the latest sources have been patched regarding the new stack.

It could also be related to the access to the raw1394 device, but I don't know if the packages touch /dev/ in any way.
