I backtrack - it is not directly a USB problem.
If I boot the image into a single mode, and then verify reading the
squashfs as a compressed file or the files in the mounted uncompressed
image - there are no errors on read.
Yet if i let it boot into X - it does not - gets bogged with disk access
errors.
And then there is no access to a USB key anymore.
Will need to investigate further..

Sorry for the alarm, Greg...
