I'll see if I can reproduce this (I'm guessing you're on Linux ?),
but debug output would help. (-D5 and capture stderr).

So I compiled it on my Mac Mini.

ColorMunki)' to 1 failed with -9

I don't see this problem on my MacBook under OS X 10.4 or 10.5.

Is it possible that you still had the Munki software running at the time,
since it will have the instrument open if it's plugged in ?
(You know how applications don't quit just because you close all their
 windows, you have to explicitly quit the application).
