Considering a lot of the CR monsters in 3.5 aren't actually fit for whatever level they're set to (I mean, a good chunk of them are, but your DM might be making the mistake, I don't know), I wouldn't call it a problem of the class being inadequate, I'd call it as the DM not knowing how powerful of beasties he's throwing @ his enemies.
