Well, I originally *assumed* that would be the problem - I just could see that 
the hanging process is rmmod - which brought me to the quick assumption that 
the module can't be removed (and is therefore compiled in). But I'm 
apparently wrong - if you load the module with hotplug then you'll naturally 
also unload it again. So it seems the bug is in the kernel module.

OTOH, I don't know where the exact difference in the code is between the 
2.4.20-bf2.4 kernel and the kernel-image-2.4.20-1-i386 (your one Herbert from 
unstable; I backported it to woody). As kernel-image-2.4.20-1-i386 works 
perfectly well with hotplug, the question is rather what the difference in 
the USB setup is. The best idea is probably to build bf2.4 from the 
kernel-image-2.4.20-1-i386, no ?
