Sorry to start with a new thread, but nobody CC:ed me as I said before,
so I didn't have anything to reply to -

Fixed now, I resubscribed with this email address.

So to the point:

Bill, this doesn't change anything, it was one of the first things I
tried to do, along with disabling USB2.0 support in bios, etc. But you
are right, this option is there, except that I can see no difference
with either enabled or disabled.

I start USB from /boot/loader.conf

And usbd_enable="YES" in rc.conf. Verbose boot doesn't show anything

ioapic0: routing intpin 7 (ISA IRQ 7) to vector 59
ppc0: [ITHREAD]
sio0 failed to probe at port 0x3f8 irq 4 on isa0
sio1 failed to probe at port 0x2f8 irq 3 on isa0
sio2: not probed (disabled)
sio3: not probed (disabled)
sn0: not probed (disabled)
vt0: not probed (disabled)
isa_probe_children: probing PnP devices
uhub0: device problem (TIMEOUT), disabling port 2
Device configuration finished.

Then, after replugging the mouse, everything works fine:
ums0: on
ums0: 7 buttons and Z dir.

Is there any other, e.g. some loader.conf tunable, that can show me why
usb decided to fail? I've had a Windows drive connected for a while and
it doesn't show these symptoms, even better - after I rebooted from
Windows 2000 to FreeBSD, the mouse was detected correctly right during
the boot, no replug needed (though I did this only once so it may or may
not be replicable). Any ideas, what I should try next to possibly
resolve this?
