Yesterday, after signing one message using my CryptoStick (OpenPGP card V2 + USB reader), GnuPG and Thunderbird (enigmail) I got my /var/log/messages.log filled up with 10GB (that's a lot) of the same exact message:

Nov 20 21:15:00 localhost pcscd: ccid_usb.c:613:WriteUSB() write failed (2/3): -9 Success

In fact it was only 10GB because I didn't have any more space left on this partition. I also had /var/log/everything.log and /var/log/user.log with the same content.

The line just before the one above was:
Nov 20 21:13:12 localhost kernel: usb 2-1.2: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3

The only thing I remember is that I probably have removed the drive at some point.

Has someone seen this behavior before?
This task depends upon

You should better ask in our forum such a question. People will not read here around. I don't use such a setup like yours and won't be able to help you. And it doesn't sound to be a packaging bug.
