I reported this issue when kernel 2.6.37 was still in testing (see https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/22412), but unfortunately it is still present in latest 2.6.37-5 in [core] and is rather critical for users of RT2573 Ralink USB Wireless adapters. This leads to complete system crash, which is solved either by using a wired ethernet connection, or by downgrading the kernel to 2.6.36 version. I do not see any entry in the log files. The sound goes to a loop, system is completely blocked and only a hard reset will allow rebooting.
I am not going to describe again the problem (see the bug report for this), which has been reported for other distributions too:

Should I fill again the bug for kernel category, or is it possible to move bug #22412 from Testing to Kernel? Thanks in advance.
I have reported the issue in upstream, I'll try to come back with a solution, hopefully.
For those affected by this issue, there is a discussion thread on rt2x00 mailing list, which starts there: http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/pipermai … 03142.html
Other threads about rt73usb crashes are also reported http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/pipermai … 03109.html
Any news on this issue ?
I tried the 2.6.38-1 kernel26 package in testing, but same kernel crash :-(
