[maemo-users] Flashing a N800 on Ubuntu Gutsy

I've a new laptop (T61) with a new distro (Ubuntu Gutsy) and a new N800.
I'm trying to upgrade it to the latest firmware, but the flasher fails:

  $ sudo .flasher-3.0 -f -F SU-18_2006SE_3.2006.49-2_PR_F5_MR0_ARM.bin -R
  flasher v0.8.7 (Oct 17 2006)

dmesg also shows this:

  [30073.780000] usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 16
  [30073.976000] usb 1-3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

  [30224.952000] usb 1-3: USB disconnect, address 16

Google didn't help.  I'd like at least to know whether the fault lies in
the laptop, the OS, or the N800.  Has anyone flashed the firmware on
Ubuntu Gutsy successfully?

(I'll be able to test flashing on my desktop this evening; it runs
Ubuntu Feisty and I've successfully flashed my old N800 on it.)

Hoping the problem  magically goes away  by ignoring it is the "microsoft
approach to programming" and should never be allowed.
