Default trivial udev rule wreaks havoc; was Backup system for use when Debian fails.

Turns out that I inflicted the problem by creating udev
rules for the purpose of making the Unibrain Fire-i camera
work.

peter@joule:~$ grep edit /lib/udev/rules.d/*acl*
# do not edit this file, it will be overwritten on update

So I created two files.

peter@joule:~$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/70-acl.rules
# Rule added for IIDC 1.04, Unibrain Fire-i camera, 2012-06-15.
SUBSYSTEM=="firewire", ATTR{units}=="*0x00a02d:0x00100*", GROUP="video"

peter@joule:~$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/91-permissions.rules
# Rule added for IIDC 1.04, Unibrain Fire-i camera, 2012-06-15.
SUBSYSTEM=="firewire", ATTR{units}=="*0x00a02d:0x00100*", GROUP="video"

/etc/udev/rules.d/ must be the "right" place for these
rules. Did I choose the file names badly or what?

Thanks, ... Peter E.
