This is a known problem. I'm still waiting for a definitive resolution
before I order my FR.
It's not just openmoko that's affected. This same bug took down the SD
card in my OLPC laptop back in January.
There have been persistent rumors that there are people who understand
this problem and know how to fix it. But I still haven't seen any
announcement that the problem has actually, really, finally been
eliminated in any shipping software.
Apparently this bug doesn't affect cards of size 512MB and smaller.
Many people who are trying to do things that require SD cards are
working around the problem by disabling suspend. Battery life suffers,
but at least development can happen.
