Try with the GUI again, and if it causes problems then report a bug as
it needs to work reliably.
hidd --search picks up my iGo Stowaway without problems. Just press
Ctrl-Fn-Fn until the green LED flashes before running it. This method
will be disappearing soon though as hidd is deprecated. With luck
someone (me?) will write a GUI app to do the job...
