Here is another CF from the same lot that works just fine.  Visually 
looking at the CFs, they are identical


# diskinfo -v /dev/ad0
/dev/ad0
         512             # sectorsize
         1014128640      # mediasize in bytes (967M)
         1980720         # mediasize in sectors
         1965            # Cylinders according to firmware.
         16              # Heads according to firmware.
         63              # Sectors according to firmware.

# dmesg | grep ad0
ad0: 967MB <KINGSTON 20060911> at ata0-master PIO4
