BTW, it may be associated with the initialization of the USB ports -
this situation reminded me of the problem with external USB devices
(cdrom or usb memstick) in sysinstall FreeBSD 8x - in some case the
device was not found without the "Re-Scan Devices". Sometimes it is
not required and it is not required on FreeBSD 7x. Re-Scan - it's just
power reset as I understand
