I am having the same problem and it seems to be mostly dependent on
hotplug, although I am not completely sure.

Having hotplut disabled and just usbcore and usb-uhci loaded and
/proc/bus/usb mounted gives it a chance.

Their docs say that the usb device can't be claimed by kernel drivers
so that is probably whats causing the problem.
