Nope - it's a known problem.
Theo & the author of the ahc driver know about it.
firstname.lastname@example.org is working on it. It's a tough one.
On http://www.openbsd.org/i386.html it says down by
"products like the AHA-29160"...
"(However, the 7899G card is currently not
supported with more than one device attached)"
Like an idiot, I bought 3 of these cards before seeing
that "fine print".
