I know and IMO your troubleshooting is the best method to find the cause
for the issue, but since I don't use braille, it's easy for me to take a
look at the BIOS configuration. Just to be absolutely safe, I would take
a look for "voodoo" settings, e.g. an option, "disable/enable E-MU audio
card support for PCIe" ;), I also would consider to update the BIOS.
That Linux can "see" hardware, that is known to work with Linux, doesn't
mean that it will work with each mobo and/or BIOS version. If a flat
ribbon cable is involved or something similar, I even would replace a
brand new cable if something shouldn't work. It's quiet possible to get
unstable connectivity, I for example hot glued SATA connectors to get
rid of issues, because the connectors loosed after a while.

That for Julien it's not that easy to take a look at the BIOS
configuration is another issue, but everybody else in this situation
should spend a few seconds, just to ensure, that nothing "capricious" is
caused by the BIOS.
