I asked a few questions on the linux-usb-dev list.  They said the best 
way to track down this problem is to run usbmon and log the USB traffic 
on the device until the problem occurs.  The quote:

Another of the developers said they they just tracked down a kernel bug 
in USB core that didn't make it into 2.6.20.  The details and the patch 
are here:


I plan to compile this up and see if it improves things.  But haven't 
had a chance yet.
