[maemo-developers] Failing to connect with flasher

I am trying to connect to my N800 with flasher.  It freezes with

Suitable USB device not found, waiting

lsusb lists the N800 at Bus 005 Device 010.  With strace I can see that
flasher is trying to open the right device, but it fails:

open("/dev/bus/usb/005/010", O_RDWR)    = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
open("/dev/bus/usb/005/010", O_RDONLY)  = 3
ioctl(3, USBDEVFS_IOCTL, 0xbf814600)    = -1 EPERM (Operation not permitted)
close(3)                                = 0
open("/dev/bus/usb/005/001", O_RDWR)    = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
open("/dev/bus/usb/005/001", O_RDONLY)  = 3

I get the same thing running flasher as root.  I tried
disconnecting/connecting the USB cable.

I am on Kubuntu 6.10 using flasher 0.8.7.  Does anyone have a suggestion?
