IIRC, you're the first report on netBSD...
so your participation will be required

the problem lies above in the I/O error. And is due to either libusb or ugen.
but I don't yet know why, so we'll need to investigate together.

Does it continue to work after you've unplugged/replugged?
Does unplugging/replugging always solve the issue
a good thing would be to reproduce the error after having done an
"export USB_DEBUG=3" to get more verbose libusb feedback, and newhidups -DD.
