it sounds like the error on the libusb_get_report line can be avoided  
with the following patch:


That error is subtly different from the error that James is seeing  
("USB problems" thread) earlier on in the driver startup sequence,  
relating to permissions.

Have you rebuilt a .deb from source before? If not, I can walk you  
through some of the steps.

You might also want to file a bug with Debian, since this seems to be  
affecting a number of people.
