I've seen this on my own system, but only when switching from the
console to X and only when i move the mouse during the switch...

My mouse claims to be a Logitech "MouseMan, Serial-MousePort". It is a
PS/2 mouse, configured as such in the X config using /dev/psaux.

Sorry i can't be of more help.
