It could be broken harddware (It is typical for flash drive.)
It could be user configuration issue.

This report is useless as presented, unless you provide us with explicit
information such as:
* under what live Linux CD you can use your usb drive.
* under some older Debian you can use your usb drive.
* what partition table and size is this
* some kernel log found in crashed system.
* did you upgraded system or installed it as fresh?
* what desktop environment is used
* non-GUI mount (after disablng desktop) result
....

Unless submitter can produce more useful ino, we should close this as
done. BTS is not support help line ....

Regards,

Osamu

The kernel is supposed to be robust against faulty USB devices. They
should not be able to cause a crash, unless the device or port has an
electrical fault (e.g. short circuit).

Given that Atanas says says the drive could be mounted, I think this is
a kernel bug. See the section 'required information' at
<http://kernel-handbook.alioth.debian.org/ch-bugs.html>.

Ben.

We may need a confirmation about the crash, don't we? i.e. confirm
this is really a full crash of the entire system and not just some
component in the desktop environment.

That's worrying; thanks for reporting it. Please attach the output
from running

sh /usr/share/bug/linux-image-$(uname -r)/script 3>&1
dpkg-query -W linux-image-$(uname -r)

and attach a photograph of the crash if possible so we can read the
messages and isolate the cause. If you get a chance to test version
3.0.0-1 from unstable, that would also be very helpful.

Hope that helps,
Jonathan
