i compared the two config files.  there is an additional usb entry in the 
2.2.20 config:


everything else in usb is identical.

just for fun, i tried unplugging and re-plugging the usb cable.. no joy.

so does anyone have any suggestions?  this is the first real thing i have 
found so far.

thanks again
