In fact just turning the printer off and on helped.  I then also rebooted and
now the printer works from both the Wheezy host and the virtualbox XP client.

However, there is a new error message early on in booting:

Waiting for /dev to be fully populated...

'mtp-probe /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.3 1 3'

Yes, but that has now reverted to normal too.

The only external devices are monitor, keyboard, and mouse none of which
(believe it or not) are USB.  I do have a USB extender cable connected, but
at the moment nothing is connected to it.
