That isn't a Microsoft serial mouse by any chance, is it?
Revision 2.1A?  (Check the bottom of the mouse to be sure).
There was a thread recently on this describing the exact same
symptoms, in which the problem was tracked down to this.  I
verified this by exchanging mice with the original poster,
since his office is 3 doors down from mine :-) The only fix
I have heard of is exchanging the mouse for another one.
