I was bit by this one recently. Try starting pcscd service. I noticed
on my machine (10.1 x86_64 upgraded from 9.3) that usbfs was not being
mounted after booting. A search in /etc/init.d allowed me to find it
apparently now needs this smart card daemon now to mount usbfs (I think
it used to be done in boot.localfs). Try that anyway.
