Of course this is not the ideal solution to your problem, but at the moment
is what I have to say to help you:

1 - If you do not have to access a remote kernel, reinstall the Mathematica
and let just the option LOCAL in protocol options in KERNELS's dialog box.

2 - If you have to use a remote kernel, you could use the Microsoft's TCP/IP
software instead of the Trumpet's one. I had the same problem as yours with 
Trumpet's TCP/IP, but till I have tried the bugs mentioned above do not
happen with Microsoft's TCP/IP.

Good luck,
