Does it happen everytime you unplug it or only once in a while ? Also,
have you ever been running and older 2.4 kernel not causing this problem ?

Does the same problem happen when you plug/unplug a USB keyboard on the
same machine ?

Yes, it would help a lot. That along with your kernel config and an
lsmod and dmesg outputs before the problem. Ideally, you should pass
the messages output through ksymoops with all modules loaded as before
the problem happens. If you want to more easily capture your messages,
you can connect another machine to your serial port and boot with
"console=ttyS0".

Regards,
Willy
