Apologies for continually replying but I also just noticed these
three lines in dmesg as I've been trying all of this out:

[   66.714466] rtl_tcp[3670]: segfault at 0 ip 00007f5d329389f2 sp
00007fff71c8e780 error 6 in[7f5d32930000+15000]
[   87.168292] rtl_tcp[3812]: segfault at 0 ip 00007f0d2fc609f2 sp
00007f0d2e26cb50 error 6 in[7f0d2fc58000+15000]
[  398.814077] rtl_tcp[8760]: segfault at 0 ip 00007f623a1a09f2 sp
00007f62384acb40 error 6 in[7f623a198000+15000]

Maybe this is a case of something not liking libusb at all? BTW here's
some info on the version of libusb I have installed on my system:

# aptitude show libusb-1.0-0
Package: libusb-1.0-0
State: installed
Automatically installed: no
Multi-Arch: same
Version: 2:1.0.16-3
Priority: optional
Section: libs
