I'm getting crazy with my Mac Pro 1,1 (now 3,1) for a problem that in certain moments seems solved, and then inexplicably returns.
After putting the Mac to sleep and then awakening it, when it comes the moment to connect a USB device it freezes.
Below you can find the message I receive from Chameleon booting in verbose mode, and I hope that someone can help me to understand the reason.
Thanks a lot

Finally I solved the problem with a clean installation of the system!    ;D
Now, after 3 weeks, I can cry Victory without the fear that it's too soon.
Anyway it's important that I boot Chameleon with the boot flag -f and using Kernel cache:
Code: [Select]
   <key>Kernel Flags</key>
Long live the Mac Pro 1,1!
