Ding Ding, you just woke me up!

And what kernel version was that?  I ask because I just had to 
backup from 2.4.20 to 2.4.20-rc3 in order to print, all 4 ports on 
the 2 hubs available externally are full here due to mouse, ups, 
scanner and printer.  My mobo has another hub, but no front panel 
buildout on it (yet)

2.4.20 wouldn't print come hell OR high water.  The /dev/usb/lp0 
port was always busy.  Reboot to 2.4.20-rc3 and all is well again.
