USB devices definitely have flaky drivers.  2.6.9-1.1049_FC4 (running on
FC3) is going a bit better for me but I still got it to oops. However,
FC3 kernels would reliably oops every time you unplugged a CD drive. Now
it seems I have to do something trickier (like unplug a mounted hard
drive).

I'm hoping that since all the stuff is there now for people to easily
plug and unplug and have things work automatically, the driver bugs will
get more visibility and fixage.
