[App_rpt-users] node stops talking to URI

Ahhh... well.... ahhhh...

Since it doesnt seems to be a problem with Asterisk, it would unfortunately point
to a problem with the USB hardware on your PC, or some sort of weird driver
incompatibility with Linux. I know it has done this on 2 machines. Over the years
I have had MANY machines that have exhibited similar and even stranger problems
with their USB.

USB just isnt reliable. We know it. Thats why we dont and never have recommended
the use of USB devices on a mountain top or other hard to get to locations. 

USB, it isnt just for breakfast anymore......   :-)
