Try lsusb as root.  If it shows up, it is just braindamage happening, with a
race condition on USB plugin just to make sure you know that whomever is
responsible for it really needs to get his act together.

Track down whatever is screwing up with /proc/bus/usb permissions and you
will have the culprit.

Ah. This means hotplug is probably the one to blame for the race condition.
