Just a quote note before work- I ran through the (28) individual Spawn_PNP Detection ***** logs and all of them were blank. Possible I missed the one with something in it, so I will look again after work.
As for lsusb:

BTW- I was looking at the Spawn files from the MD that I have my usb-to-serial adapter plugged into... not the core where I have my z-wave device. I do not have any Spawn PNP... files in my /var/log/pluto/ directory on the device where I currently have my tricklestar and my aeon labs z-wave usb device plugged in (the core).
