usbhidaction(1) accepts a configuration with the "-c" flag. If you run it with the "-v" flag it basically reports this configuration before running in earnest.

The issue is that if the configuration contains a wildcard character ('*'), then "usbhidaction -v" reports it as a "0", which is incorrect because "0" is actually a totally valid number otherwise.

In other words, "usbhidaction -v" should show a "*" wherever a "*" appears in the configuration, not make up a number.
Simply run usbhidaction in verbose mode with a configuration which features a "*" in place of a numerical value.
