Need to reconnect BP after each usage

And another question:
Everytime I use my BP for flashing or even when connecting with console (screen) I have to reconnect the BP (unplug and plug the USB cable) in order to use it again. Otherwise it will not respond.

Any clue why this is happening/necessary?

/edit: Forgot details about my set-up:
V3.5c Bus Pirate with bootloader v4.4 and firmware v6.1 r1676 and used in Ubuntu Precise

Hi Marcus,

I think the OpenOCD support uses a higher baud rate than the normal terminal. Maybe the Bus Pirate or FTDI chip are not being returned to the correct speed.

Does this happen if you connect with a console twice, or only after flashing with OpenOCD?
Got a question? Please ask in the forum for the fastest answers.

How do you exit openocd ?... If you issue correct command ("shutdown"), it will correctly exit the OpenOCD mode on the buspirate. There is no other solution for this problem, and has been discussed some time ago.
