ok, I think I've got it: how did you tried this one: recompiling the deb
package or the source.
there is a udev change in 2.4.1 that is targeted to Jaunty.
udev rules were previously in /etc/udev/rules.d, and is now is
this means that the privileges won't be set correctly if you use such a
package on pre jaunty.
if you went from source, well I'm not sure.
If you have anything you would like run or if there is any other debugging

yep, I'm interested in a simple 'lsusb'
then, validates the privileges for both 2.2.2 and 2.4.1 with the data from
lsubs (Bus and Dev)
by doing an "ls -l /dev/bus/usb/XXX/YYY" (and/or /proc/bus... equivalent).
my guess is that it's a permission issue.
and you can validate it by running the driver as root (ie bcmxcp_usb -u root
