User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0)

USB file system /proc/bus/usb hangs when the install process trys to 
unmount the USB file system during shutdown, after completing a sucessful 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run install from CD, with USB Logitech Cordless Trackman mouse
2.Install runs perfectly in defaul mode. i.e. high res graphical.
3.Restart after sucessful install.

Actual Results:  /proc/bus/usb hangs when unmounting
Resorted to removing power from system. The system then start perfectly in 
shell mode (init 3), but hangs if if you run startx.

Expected Results:  System should just restart without hanging.

If the USB mouse is replaced with a PS/2 mouse, the system works without 
any problems. The USB mouse works with the RedHat 7.0

Comment 1 Pete Zaitcev 2001-06-25 20:25:15 UTC
This bug seems to be twofold:
1. Well known hang on umount;
2. Hang of startx, which seems to be unrelated.
