We discovered this problem nearly 1.5 years ago, but didn't submit the
HID patch then. I am glad that you did it now.

At that time I rewrote the libusb detection and fixed the non-portable
code. I was thinking that the detection routine would report a device
was found and then fails to actually open the device. But from Ernie's
report it does not seem to like that.
