This is a bit of a long shot, but Windows tends to remember the driver
it had attached to various devices, so if you had device #832 running
with 0.9.11-pre5 and that device wasn't present when you upgraded to
-pre9, windows might still use the old driver.

Once you block-attach the device, can you right click and see what
version of the driver it has loaded? Even if it says -pre9, please try
upgrading the driver anyway.
