Not as yet. As I indicated I can only test the problem at a remote site
and I don't get much time to look at it.

I agree, it can't be the case. To prove that I hadn't just made a
mistake, I transplanted the whole usb branch and it still failed. This
really points to the user app - which is complex and I haven't got to
the bottom of it. It's a multi-threaded library and I see it's doing
some sort of packet requeuing based on a timer. I can't see what has
changed but I am guessing it's a kernel timing issue. It would explain
