Thanks for the nice summary and the links.
Hopefully someone will have time to look into the problem.
I fear that the fact that it installs several drivers
makes it unlikely it will be able to work in wine,
but who knows.

Also, even if the USB problems are worked out, there might
be a bunch of crypto features that still need to be implemented/fixed.

It looks like the software your bank uses is described here:
(And it looks like they have a Linux version of their
software, including the Token Administration Utility,
but that won't help you.)

They mention that they conform to the "windows smart card infrastructure"
described in
The "base csp" described there is at
but won't install on non-licensed versions of windows, like wine.
