Hi,

I unplugged my (second) webcam, forgotting to stop ekiga, and khubd is
now taking 100% CPU.

- lsusb doesn't return
- /etc/init.d/udev restart didn't resolve the problem.

Is that a problem one may want to investigate or should I just forget
about it (problem being cause by a user error)?

Is there a way for me to:
 - get more information about the problem ? I cannot strace not gdb
attach to the kernel process.
 - solve the issue without restarting the computer
 - should I do something particular before unplugging a USB device (on
windows there's this tray program to stop the USB device), should I
just run some sort of lsof on the device to check if it is safe to
remove it ?

Cheers,

 Jerome

 [Pleased keep me CC'ed]

You might start with mentioning which kind of camera your second webcam is.

If your are using this driver
http://mxhaard.free.fr/download.html

then it appears that it most likely hanging here:

	for (n = 0; n < SPCA50X_NUMFRAMES; n++)
		if (waitqueue_active(&spca50x->frame[n].wq))
			wake_up_interruptible(&spca50x->frame[n].wq);
	if (waitqueue_active(&spca50x->wq))
		wake_up_interruptible(&spca50x->wq);
	gspca_kill_transfert(spca50x);
	PDEBUG(3, "Disconnect Kill isoc done");
	up(&spca50x->lock);
	while (spca50x->user)
		schedule();

This driver's disconnect handling is buggy. As this is an out of tree
driver, please contact the original author.

	Regards
		Oliver

OK thanks for your answer.

I also found out that ekiga was still running. I killed it and that
stopped the hang.
