How did you continue to send data to the device if the device is gone?
Did you forget to stop a timer or something?

Odds are the device is long cleaned up, so you might need to just ensure
that you have a reference to the device if you keep a pointer to it so
this doesn't happen in the future.  Do you have a pointer to your driver
