Hi you three, welcome to the club. All my remaining linux systems are affected to some degree of "lost" device events, not limited to TDE. The problem started ~ 2 years ago and got worse ever since. As far as I tracked it down, "something" is consuming device events before they get sent to the netlink. I tried the C program from this text: - It does not show any notifications when an "unwanted" device is connected.
