That's really odd. And doesn't reproduce here.

address@hidden:~/software/gpsd$ gpspipe -r

Try running gpsd in foreground with a high debug level, say like this:

gpsd -D 5 -n -N /dev/ttyUSB0 

(substituting your device for /dev/ttyUSB0). The device connect/disconnect 
messages from the daemon might tell us something useful.
