I'm seeing this in Intrepid, latest kernel:

$ uname -a
Linux hostname 2.6.27-14-server #1 SMP Fri Mar 13 18:45:51 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

This is on my desktop (not a laptop, and no wireless).

One more piece of data: this bug is more than just spewing an error into the logs.

When I connect an iPhone to a USB port for overnight battery charging, and this bug hits - it effectively disables the charging. Result: in the morning the battery is totally consumed. Apparently, when the port is disabled, it causes a overnight current drain i.e. recharging turns into discharging.
