Package: mtpfs
Version: 0.9-3
Severity: normal


I have a system with a KVM switch connecting keyboard, mouse and screen to my 
machine, onto which I plugged an Iconia A500 tablet.

I tried to mount it using 
# mtpfs -o allow_other /media/a500/

No sooner had I typed that command, did my screen black out.

I guess there must be some kind of probing done by mtpfs on the USB devices 
that got the KVM switch to be reset :-(

Here's lsusb :

Maybe it could be less aggressive to devices which don't support MTP ?
