The problem I've is that nothing changed on the machine except that
I did a reboot. Nothing (USB device) added, nothing removed, so with
a stable hardware config, USB numbering should have stayed stable, IMHO.

Well yes, I'm going to try to convert to some other identifiers space
as this seems to be the only way to go.

Thanks for the confirmation,
