One of the positive results of upgrading my computer system is that the new version now recognizes my USB flash card reader, which up to now I have had to use with the old (USB 1.0) Apple. Now I can get much higher speeds without firing up another machine.
Well, almost. Today I put it in the machine, it was recognized, but I got the dreaded mouse hang. Nothing else was wrong: after shooting down and restarting X, everything worked. So is this maybe an issue with the FreeBSD USB subsystem? Certainly it occurs under Linux as well, but maybe that's a different cause for the same symptom.
