max with arduino + iLok: problem

I have an intermittent problem when using an arduino board (via Maxuino to max, with 2 CV pedals on analog inputs) at the same time as an iLok (which is simply authorising plugins in a patch).

Every so often (after maybe an hour) I get an error message telling me that the plugin is not authorised &/or there’s an iLok problem. The patch then crashes. Removing the arduino fixes this (I had gigs with the patch all week I didn’t have time to risk crashes so I managed without the pedals). I wonder if the arduino is drawing a bit too much power… Any thoughts? Would a powered USB hub help?
