1) Average looks weird when wispy_gtk is just started.
Shots before and after patching:

The patch (url or patch itself):

2) Application hangs when device is removed.
This is because usb_control_msg() always return ok, even if the device is not present.
There's a possible workaround for this, because i have noticed that buf[] is not modified in that function when device has been removed. So you could do buf[0]=0xff before calling usb_control_msg() and check whether it has changed (buf[0]==(unsigned char)0xff) to see if everything is ok.
This trick works and i have not found any drawback.
