It looks like it may be a bug in libusb20 or the usb2 stack. I've sent an email to Hans and freebsd-usb@ and will see what they think. I very much suspect it's not a bug in gpsbabel itself because USB_ENDPOINT_ADDRESS_MASK must exist for a reason, and removing the masking was just a hack to get things working just now. -- Bruce Cran _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
