Not that I know of. Maybe newer Arduinos have a USB driver that handles
this better?
AFAIK the only way to get around this issue is to use a Byron/Minia
and use the HID or MIDI-USB for the (Sensor-)input.
Newer Arduinos should be able to reprogram the USB Atmel chip to behave
like a Keyboard/HID/MIDI-USB, That would work too.

And Pd is not freezing either?
