Mentioned USB hardware was working on a XP guest on vb 3.08 in Jaunty 9.04 64-bit (well, had to disable and enable it again, but it worked). After upgrading to 9.10, blue screen every time I want to use it and XP crash when I click at the bottom status bar to select it. Upgraded vb to 3.10, same result, device unusable.
lets check dmsg output:
it stated on 9.04:

usa19qw.fw was proprietary firmware, hence not available
and now on 9.10:

so device is attached to ttySB0
that is the difference I can spot. I have never used this adapter on ubuntu, only on the guest.
