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

Probably not, because this stage (xfree86 configuration) passed successfully, and it surely calls discover which seems to always look at /proc/bus/usb/devices.

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.
