Thanks, I understand what the bug says and its marked RESOLVED, but how is 
not shown. My problem is I use Iscan (epkowa) and VirtualBox. Both want 50-
udev-default rule configured differently. VBox wants the usb device nodes 
section disabled, (do by copying the rule from /lib/udev/rules.d to 
/etc/udev/rules.d and then editing the rule in /etc/udrv/rules.d to disable 
the usb device nodes section. Vbox will then detect all usb devices correctly. 
See discussion under http://forums.opensuse.org/applications/412870-
virtualbox-usb-grey.html. Epkowa wants it enabled with slightly different root 
permissions 9664){see iscan rule in /etc/udev/rules.d - probably need Iscan 
installed, Not Iscan free, but version from AVASYA website}. Vbox works 
perfectly if both the above rule has usb-device nodes disabled and fstab usbfs 
disabled. If both mentioned changes are inabled, Iscan work from both root and 
user. If just fstab enable, iscan works only as root, but not user. In these 
two cases VirtualBox does not detect usb devices correctly.

Oh, I do not have auto detect turned on.

Thanks for your response, I will post results in Forum under the above link. 
For some reason my posts to the thread thru knode do not show up.
