It's a bit more complicated... In fact, this problem seems to only occur
when mouseemu is running and only the first time the usb mouse is unplugged.
With pbbuttonsd runing but not mouseemu, everything's ok (at least, I
disabled mouseemu in rc2 and I never encountered the problem again).
With mouseemu and pbbuttonsd both running, here is the scenario :
- iBook started with mouseemu and pbbuttonsd
- top is launch to monitor the cpu consumption
- the mouse is unpluged
- mouseemu starts to eat all cpu activity
- /etc/init.d/mouseemu stop
- pbbuttons starts to eat all cpu activity
- /etc/init.d/pbbuttonsd restart
- everything's ok
- mouse is plugged in
- mouse is unplugged
- everythings is still ok.
Tell me is you want me to test various scenarii (restarting mouseemu instead
of stoping, test without pbbuttonsd...).
