I've been using Personal Hotspot via USB every workday for more than a year.  Today, the USB connection dropped in mid-use. I can't reestablish it - OSX says that the cable isn't plugged in or the iPhone is not configured for tethering.

 

iTunes sees the phone over the USB connection - syncing works correctly.  The phone charges up over the USB cable.

 

Bluetooth works, but I prefer not to broadcast in an office environment.

 

This happened immediately after downloading & installing iTunes 10 (over the USB link!)

 

Reboot of the mac and/or iPhone doesn't help

 

Tech specs: Macbook Pro 8,2 with OSX 10.6.8 and my iPhone 4 (not "S"), iOS 5.1.1. USB cable was supplied with phone. I tried a different cable: no effect.
