I too, would have not blamed the hypervisor. That is peculiar that the hub ‘makes it work’.
Maybe next time I give Vista a try, I will run through this scenario.

I could not get usb devices to work with Vista 32bit host and any guest.
VMware even had problems. When I had XP as my host and an earlier version of Virtualbox worked fine so I concluded it was Vista. Tried Googling the problem and permisions helped but still usb problems persisted. Finally I plugged in a cheapo usb hub into my pc and life is good. All my devices work with Virtualbox as long as I plug them into the external hub. I have an EVGA motherboard 1222-CK-NF66 , NVIDIA nForce 650i Ultra. 2 Gig ram, Vista 32bit Ultimate, NVIDIA Geforce 7600GS video. Intel Core 2 6600.
