I had this problem with a new Jessie setup.I run a machine as home server and home automation controller. The latter uses the common RFXCOM RfxTrx device for wireless communication. It talks to the machine via USB and a FTDI chip that is affected by this bug.
I do not need braille, so, as a workaround, I can remove brltty. This is just a "heads up" that the bug does need resolving.
