Snow Leopard’s USB Forgetfulness and AppleEvents?

I wonder if Snow Leopard's propensity for "losing" USB devices is related to the AppleEvents bug I wrote about yesterday.

It seems like it could be, right?

P.S. Snow Leopard lost my keyboard twice today. Both were coincidentally after I had switched Spaces with a keyboard shortcut (ctrl-1, -2, -3). Yesterday it lost my mouse while using Aperture's spot correction tool.

    I've made an AppleScript and assigned it a keyboard shortcut now so I can just fire up the script - tell application "Dock" to quit - when Spaces screws up my keyboard.

    And yeah, I'm kidding about the keyboard shortcut, obviously. I use the mouse to select the script from the FastScripts menu.
