root plug issue

I am playing around with root_plug to see how well it works... and well here is my issu:
root plug is compiled as module in the kernel.
I am using kernel 2.6.15 patched for reiser4.
the root file system is reiser4 (if that matters)
after typing:
modprobe root_plug vendor_id=05af product_id=0802
i get:
Root Plug module initialized: vendor_id = 0005 product_id = 0000

allready does'nt sound too good to me.
i got the vendor & product info from #cat /proc/bus/usb/device

Now if i had the related device plugged or not at the the of modprobe does'nt matter.

All root command are not permited.
then if i unplug or plug the related device. any root command just hang( i do not get the not permitted warning) and have to use the sysrq reboot command.

i have tried with a few device and also giving the eg: 0x062a. all the same

I google around for this but there is really not much doc about this.
