Here's the problem: a lot of people have reported error messages like  
this, and there's not a whole lot I can do about it because none of  
the HID devices I have are failing in this manner.

For something with just a few buttons, you are probably better off  
trying to use the Linux hiddev interface, or the kernel event interface:
