Do you have a really good reason to be using 1.9.1. If not then just keep using 1.9.0. Did you check what changes were made in the 1.9 upgrade. Often you will find useful information about this type of issue in the change log.

You have not told us anything about the machine you are using and this is important information when it comes to devices.

I think you may be better off upgrading, I think 2.1 is due out shortly.
