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

Severity high, prevents use of whole system due to inability to set up hardware.
I am seeing the same thing on one of my systems. It appears to be caused by
having a Firewire adapter installed (mine is a SIIG combo USB2+IEEE1394 card).
If I remove the card, the problem goes away. The Firewire card appears to work
properly. I just can't use Hardware Browser at all when it is installed.
Just realized that this is a duplicate of 74956. The workaround posted for
74956 worked for me.
Resolving as a dupe of bug #74956, which I just fixed.
