I agree, this shouldn't be a bug tracker, sorry, I shouldn't have started this with a report of a really old issue, but it's all I found at short notice :) I've found another report of a regression that is newer for USB and bounced it to you as well. Hopefully that is a bit easier to track. thanks, greg k-h
