Default Zune Not Compatible With USB Hubs?

Since pairing my Zune with my Media Center PC, I've been using the front USB port as the connecting port for the Zune cradle, and it's worked perfectly. Today I decided that the USB cable connecting to the front port looked a bit sloppy, so I connected the cradle to a generic 7 port USB hub that I have connected to the back of my Shuttle SN95G5 PC. I connected the Zune to the cradle...and Windows XP started giving me errors about the USB device not being recognized. I tried several other ports on the hub, and all resulted in the same errors. I've since re-arranged my USB devices, moving the wireless mouse/keyboard to the USB hub, freeing up a direct USB port for the Zune - and it's now working just fine. So that makes me wonder if the Zune is one of those devices that just doesn't play nice with USB hubs (like some Pocket PCs and Smartphones). Has anyone has similar problems with their Zune and USB hubs?
