Description of problem:
We have several Dell Precision systems running Redhat.  Each system 
is hooked up to a Dell FP1901 monitor.  The monitor has 4 USB ports 
on it.  When you plug a memory stick into the monitor's USB port one 
of the following occurs:
The stick is not detected
The stick cannot be mounted (no file system is found)
The stick cannot be unmounted
All data on the stick is corrupted and the system locks up.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Plug in a memory stick to the monitor
2.Mount ths stick (if it's found)
3.Copy data to the stick (if it mounts)
4.Unmount the stick
5.Try and read the data on another system.  Good luck!

Actual Results:  I've seen a variety of problems from the stick not 
being recognized to all data on the stick being corrupted.  Generally 
the system hangs if you try and copy data to the stick.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
