USB devices stop responding when a new device is inserted
I'm running archlinux & just recently started having a problem where ALL USB devices will stop responding for a second when a new USB device is plugged in. dmesg doesn't provide any hints.
For example, I've got my music on an external HD & it will stop playing for like ~30 seconds if plug in my camera or gamepad...
This issue only seemed to start after my home partition was erased & re-created, though I don't see how these two issues could be related.
I've been running a custom kernel (2.6.35-rc6) for the past few months, and that hadn't changed to spur this issue. Thinking it may have been something weird with the kernel, I even switched over 2.6.36-rc6-mainline, yet this did not remediate the issue.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
