I had this problem the other day, my guess as to what did it was that I 
unplugged the FR and then plugged it back in too quickly (i.e: before 
the usb device had finished doing it's disconnect thing on the host)

I was able to fix it by doing (on the host, as root):
 modprobe -r uhci_hcd
 modprobe uhci_hcd

I suspect that doing this if you're using a USB keyboard might be a bad 
thing, though...
