Actually, even pre8 doesn't have the updates that would matter
for something like this ... the "better" was mostly not oopsing
if you unplug a hub (it was a hub driver bug).  You'd need some
patches that aren't yet in Marcelo's tree, but which HAVE been
pasted here on LKML.  (And people who've tried them have said
the patches have improved things for them.)

Have a look at these posts, which are slightly updated versions of
what's been posted to LKML (patches in the second two):

Alternatively, try this out on 2.5.latest ... those patches give
2.4.20-pre7 (or pre8) the same EHCI code as seen in 2.5.39, but
if you try 2.5.39 you'll benefit from some usb-storage fixes too.

And of course, if you "rmmod ehci-hcd" you'd be running using the
companion controller (likely a NEC using "usb-ohci"), which might
help you figure out whether the EHCI driver is even a factor in
this case.

Last fall, the EHCI driver was only available to bleeding-edge hackers
who were willing to work from CVS.  To whom did you report this?  I
can confirm that any problem report from last fall wasn't made to the
right people ... I surely didn't see any such report!  :)
