USB Printer shutdown problem

The system hangs on shutdown (or restart) with the USB connected Canon printer connected. If I boot without the printer the system will shutdown just fine.

The shutdown performs:

usb.c disconnecton device 1
usb.c disconnecton device 2
printer.c usblp0: removed

and hangs

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Background. Mandrake 8.1 dual 400Mhz processor HP Kayak XA, 512 RAM, running SAMBA, etc.

I had a similar problem with my usb devices. Wasn't a printer though. But this was only happening when my sound card and network card where still conflicting. After I changed the irq on the network card and got both the sound card and the network card configured properly I didn't have any toubles anymore with disconnecting USB devices.

I don't know why it did that but I never really looked into the problem since it went away after I solved my other problem.
But I guess all that info doesn't help much since it's not a solution. But what I just wanted to try and say is that it might not be your USB devices that's causing the shutdown problem.
