I use the last ubuntu with the default kernel. This distro include the
driver version 20060501-1 .
As you can read (my log above) i doesn't have your problem, with the
same device, but with a different drivers version. Have you exactly
the same device than me ?
bcdDevice            1.00
iManufacturer           0

I hope this can help...
