Yes, please.

Does /var/log/dpkg.log* give any hints as to when this problem first
appeared?  If no obvious explanation jumps out, I'd recommend trying
some kernels from snapshot.debian.org to find which version introduced
the bug.

Looks usb-related.  Does unloading the ohci_hcd module avoid trouble?

These lines are line-wrapped, which makes them hard to read.  Please
use an attachment next time.

Thanks much, and hope that helps,
