Comment 4 for bug 1021516

As per IRC discussion; there seems to be issues with, as a first step, the device not activating properly. There's microcode errors in the logs and I sadly don't know enough about the driver internals to go deeper there; but I do think it deserves investigation. The microcode errors (with what looks to me like timing issues) and the direct probes timing out are probably linked -- I'm adding a task for 'linux'.

The second issue is with the authentication windows popping up and stacking over one another rather than just ever keeping one window around. That's an issue with auto-activation that should be fixed in git already, but will need further testing -- I should prepare ppa packages for that.
