USB HDD Drops Out if Network Unplugged

Black Hole

May contain traces of nut
This is weird, I can't think of a reason for it, but I have observed that unplugging the Ethernet from my HD-FOX results in the USB HDD no longer working. It's not that a "USB device disconnected" comes up on screen, it just stops working until I reboot. Media stalls. Reconnecting the Ethernet doesn't fix it.

Wouldn't you know it, after several occasions it did, I just tried it again and it didn't. Maybe I disturbed the adjacent USB connection at the same time.
