Well, there were separate and similar USB probs fixed for me by recent 

But looking closer at your error reports, it is reminding me of something I 
read a few weeks ago about max packet sizes, or max buffer sizes for 
different USB <-> ATA chipsets?  Some can handle 128KB, some 64KB, something 
like that.  I think it was someone's patch reducing the limit in kernel 
sources on a ml I was looking at.

Glad I was of some help.  Yeah it should be more graceful.

I get the same behaviour as you on some laptops and not others here.  Makes me 
think it can be (video) BIOS or video driver related as well as ACPI.
