That is one reason. Another is that the device might actually have been changed between scans.

I suppose we could detect that a given USB ID has failed N times in N tries and stop checking it until it disappears for a complete cycle (or something like that). My problem is that I have no motivation at all to take on this task, having neither a floppy drive nor a device that isn't fully recognized.
