There have been several changes after the 2.6.26 release to the usbhid
driver for fixing race conditions and to improve the error handling.
The next release of Debian (6.0, code name Squeeze) will be based
on 2.6.32. At this point our efforts are focused on bringing this
version in shape. Please test the current 2.6.32 from unstable/testing
and tell us whether the problem persists. If so, we should report it
upstream to the kernel.org developers.
The 2.6.32 kernel is available from packages.debian.org and can
be installed in both Debian stable, testing and unstable
