Additional fact: it seems that I can produce the effect with ~80% on
port 1 and port 2 of hub 1 and so far I couldn't reproduce it at all on
port 8 of the same hub. This is after about the same number of attempts
on all three ports.
The only difference is that port 1 and port 2 are at the rear panel and
port 8 is at the front.
