usb problem: usb system refuses to recognize hardware


I have a problem. Up to now, I have user digikam to copy pictures from a ptp 
compliant camera to my HD. Somehow, suddenly the usb system in this computer 
won't properly function anymore. All I have done is a dist-upgrade with 
target Sarge recently, this is a system that largely runned Sarge with some 
bits of stable. 

[00:32] root@dionysos:/var/log# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  

That is the root hub I suppose, but the stupid thing is, I can mount whatever 
usb device I want (I also have a bad old unused scanner), lsusb still only 
shows that one device. 

Can someone please give me a hint, I don't know where to start :-(  . I have 
no conflicts in my apt database, no unconfigured packages, no unsatisfied 
dependencies. The kernel is selfcompiled, and has remained the same for some 
time (2 september as you can see:). 

[00:36] root@dionysos:/var/log# uname -a
Linux dionysos 2.4.26 #1 Thu Sep 2 12:30:18 CEST 2004 i686 GNU/Linux

Usb filesystem is mounted:

proc on /proc type proc (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
none on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw,devmode=0666)
(uninteresting items snipped)

Hotplug is started at boot time:

[00:33] root@dionysos:/var/log# /etc/init.d/hotplug restart

I do not have hal, dbus, or udev installed.
