Bug#251020: xfree86 doesn't recognize horiz&vert rates + cat /proc/bus/usb/devices hangs, and so discover does

Does cat /proc/bus/usb/devices hang on 2.4 too?
Probably not, because this stage (xfree86 configuration) passed
successfully, and it surely calls discover which seems to always look at

On the same computer I'm running Debian unstable+experimental with
2.6.6. On it, I manually did "mount -t usbdevfs none /proc/bus/usb",
and "cat /proc/bus/usb/devices" runs fine. There are two devices.
On the installed with debian-installer system (where the problem
occurs), there are 2 devices too, because "ls /proc/bus/usb/devices"
gives something like: "001 002 devices". It is kernel 2.6.5, so
probably when d-i moves to 2.6.6 this bug will auto-fix.
Tomorrow I'll upgrade kernel-image of my d-i system to see what happens.
