Maybe an circuit which detects the attach/detach is necessary.
Not so sure if this will solve the problem. The other problem is the
dependence of USB voltage for some PICs. But to solve the problem
will increase the cost of PICkit 2 by quite a bit (like USBProg).
The firmware should also be updated (I think it is being updated)
to solve the bugs in the USB framework.
BTW, I think me your integrating PICkit 1/2 into the demo
board is a good idea.
