Unfortunately, the crashing system is a small form machine and
there is no way to put in a different USB controller. The USB
drive was for backups, which I now do over the network to the
machine that is working just fine.
That might indicate a cable problem, even just being too long. A
line-powered hub added between a problematic USB card reader and
computer fixed an unreliable situation here.
Unfortunately that hasn't solved the problem.
