[PD] [hid] segfaults

So I got my laptop running on a 2.6 Linux kernel last night and tried  
to reproduce the segfaults that people have been having.   I tried all  
my devices and was not able to cause a segfault.  (I have a Logitech  
Wingman Force 3D joystick, a Saitek Cyborg 3D Force joystick, a  
Microsoft IntelliMouse 5-button Optical mouse, a Logitech iFeel mouse,  
a Belkin Nostromo n30 gaming mouse, and my PowerBook's trackpad.)

My devices also deliver a flood of 'syn' events, that part of the Linux  
input event system as of 2.6 kernels.  But it all seems fine.  By the  
way, in the new release, I removed the timestamp since Pd's float is  
too small to fully represent it (its a really bit int) and I don't  
think its very useful in this context anyway.  Maybe that contributed  
to the segfault?  I am going to look thru the bug reports again and see  
if I can think of anything.
