Again with the firewire

Also, I've found that plugging in a FireWire device, then unplugging it
before doing anything with it (but after waiting ~30 seconds, long enough
for the kernel to see the plug event and try to load the driver) will
cause a system freeze. If I do something with the device (try to mount it
or something), then it's fine, the unplug goes off without a hitch, and
the system continues running.
