Comment(by olberger):

 I have changed my /etc/network/interfaces setup on the Debian desktop at
 the other end of the usb cable to set :

 allow-hotplug usb0
 iface usb0 inet static
         post-up ifconfig usb0 -multicast

 I think this may be improving the situation, as this seems to deactivate
 avahi's monitoring of that network interface.

 Maybe that would be a solution.
