With KDE 3.4 is shipped an addon to kde control panel available in "Control 
Center->Peripherals->Mouse" which gives information about logitech mice.
Such addon needs the user to own the device file in /proc/bus/usb directory to 
KDE sources provides two files for hotplug to manage such permissions (in 
kdebase tarball: kcontrol/input/consoleUserPerms and 
kcontrol/input/logitechmouse.usermap); these files should be moved 
in /etc/hotplug/usb to actually change file permissions on mouse plugging.
As debian does not use pam_console by default, however consoleUserPerms should 
be modified to detect user not using console lock file.

I upgraded hal daemon and the problem seems fixed
