USB prevents system from powering off and ucom prevents usb from
being unloaded - ideas?

Subject line is the executive summary of my problem:
I have a box with an Intel 945GC A2 chipset that will not poweroff on shutdown
if the usb kernel module is loaded (or statically compiled into the kernel).
Unloading the usb kernel modules sometime during shutdown (I hacked the usbd
rc script for this) to work around the problem helped until I needed to hook
up another device which uses ucom(4) to the machine. On kldunload, ucom
claims to detach, but remains loaded and subsequent kldunload attempts
trigger the error "kldunload: attempt to unload file that was loaded by the
kernel". The stuck ucom in turn prevents usb from getting unloaded and the
machine cannot poweroff.
I have already tried disabling EHCI, but it does not help. Any ideas on either
getting uhci to properly detach on shutdown or getting rid of ucom?
