I do that. I use the same method as accelges in C++/Qt to read out the 
accelerometer values and I got the very same problem. I only used the python 
skript to trace down the error, perhaps my C++ program is too big or writing 
to the Logfile takes too much time. I know that there have been several issues 
with the accs and it's hard for me to differ whether the problem results from 
my application the hardware or the kernel.
So was anybody already able to read out all values without gaps?
