I regularly see a similar problem on several boxen - and have for
quite some time.
* Mouse cursor moves, and can select windows (maximize/minimize)
* Can not select items in a window (firefox/etc) with mouse
* No keyboard response in any window
All boxes are Sid - kept current daily. I first thought it might be
hibernate/resume related - but when it started happening on my desktop
I discounted that :)
It may, however, be power related - I don't recall seeing the issue
before I enabled conservative(amd_64 desktop) or on-demand(intel_64)
On the laptop, things are often fine until after a resume, I run ntpdate
to correct the clock.
CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE (killing the WindowMaker session) always gets me out
of the problem, but it isn't fun.
