Another good guess. But...
When I say I'm running the same image on both it actually is the
bit-for-bit same image. When I build kernels here, I build them into
Debian packages. Then I can install the package wherever needed. So in
this case it really *is* the same build running on both machines -
installed using the Debian package installer.
I'm starting to think more and more that this is some sort of race
condition happening at a very low level involving the USB host
controller. The relative timing of the two machines will definitely be
different: The laptop where it doesn't work with certain kernels is a
Core2 Duo running at 1.7 GHz. But the desktop where it always works
with all kernels is a Core2 Quad running at 2.66GHz. Unfortunately that
guess doesn't help in leading to a root cause.
