yup, same nail, same hammer, same log output. Since this reduces the 
ability of a site impaired user to use these adapter devices, it could 
be construed as discriminatory in a court of law. The way I see it, this 
can be dumped in brltty's from yard with instructions to fix it, asap.

I'm not blind although I do have plastic eyes, so I don't have a clue why 
it was even being ran on my machine.  It would have saved me several 
hours, but then there would not be yet another confirmation that brltty 
is indeed broken.

There is also a machine killer bug in hplip, the module hpfax, which can 
kill the usb stuff if it doesn't have anything to do when cron awakens 
it to send a fax. renaming the binary to hpfox so cron can't find it is 
the first fix,  So thats another buglet to be fixed. Both of these need 
to be filed and fixed before an official buster respin.
