Horrible mouse problems under Sid with 2.6.17, latest xorg
For some time I have had problems with the mouse becoming erratic (losing
synch?) and generating a flurry of click events, generally opening a bunch of
Konq windows and inserting random cuts/pastes and other click events into
whatever I happen to be working on (most commonly coding with KDevelop). I
cannot reliably reproduce the behavior - usually starts a few minutes into
session and seems to perhaps occur mainly when I have the mouse over the
bottom of the screen at the Kicker bar. Usually, but not always, the mouse
becomes unresponsive after the unwanted activity subsides. Restarting X with
Ctrl-Alt-Backspc does not restore normal mouse behavior.
My system - home built Athlon 2400 PC, Mitsumi scroll mouse.
- Linux 2.6.17 source from debian, built by me with make-kpkg
- no power management enabled in kernel config.
- kernel config mouse support for PS/2
- ImPS/2 selected in xorg.conf; scroll enabled
My wife is begging me to "get rid of that @#$% Debian thing" and go back to
