I had a bug on my system which occured when I connected an USB mp3
player more than once:

When plugged in the first time, the device worked as expected. After
pulling it, it didn't get recognized again when plugged it.
Only a reboot did help. 2.6.33 final is fine, 2.6.33-gitX isn't.

Your patch, applied to -git11, did fix this.

Thanks,
Heinz.
