The usb cable is attached to a ups backup battery.* The program used to communicate with the battery is apcupsd.

that would mean that your box hangs on loading acpi modules
very early in boot.

you may want to try out 2.6.22 from backports.org
we will soon a newer alternative linux image to etch so you
will be able soon to user newer directly.

best regards

Does this error still occur with more recent kernel versions?

If you're running Etch, could you try to reproduce this bug
with the 2.6.24 based kernel added in 4.0r4?
http://packages.qa.debian.org/l/linux-2.6.24.html

Cheers,
Moritz
