I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 in VMware on top of OSX, but I've verified that the kinect works in this setup by running the freenect demos.

I get exactly the same behavior (also Ubuntu 10.10 as a VMWare guest, with OS X as a host), and exactly the same failure mode. Does reproducibility merit a ticket?
