I pulled git code again and rebuilt on an older, slower machine with
only USB2 interfaces and it works perfectly. The machine with the
problem has only USB3 ports. I noticed some list traffic recently about
a kernel bug in USB3 and wonder if this is a manifestation of that. I am
running 3.19.0-1.slh.2-aptosid-amd64 as my current kernel.

Just another data point: If I redirect the debug to /dev/null then the
problem persists. Probably useless information.
