While the crash is in the libusb and should probably be fixed there (I mean the lib code shouldn't crash even if abused ;-) it seems to be the VICE's fault to trigger the bug by some erroneous call or something. i think so because the OpenCBM tools seem to work all fine.

I've tested the Windows OpenCBM with VICE in the past, and it worked ok. Given that the problem is in libusb, I'd expect there is some difference between the Windows and FreeBSD/Mac libusb.

Perhaps VICE is not calling a proper initialization function so an invalid handle is being passed to the xum1541 plugin reset routine?
