We are dealing with cables, not witchcraft. Think about the connections. In a usb cable disconnected at either end, everything is open. It makes no difference which end you plug in first. Really, think what you are saying.
Anyway.. Move from 2.1.3 to 2.1.2 and you find the problem completely goes away - regardless of which end of the cable you plug in first, what the phases of the moon are or which way chicken feet land.
