Workig with buggy USB devices

I have a Segger Atmel ARM debugger and a PICKit2 that both can get
stuck, requiring a unplug/replug cycle.  This makes it hard to
automate testing.  How to fix?  Some possible solutions:

- Small circuit that cuts USB power

- A linux host that exports both devices to the network and can be
  reset or power-cycle.

Trouble is that the Segger GDB is closed source, so the host needs to
be a linux box.
