responding for a few seconds. I switched to another mouse - same thing. Now i have to unplug (it's usb) and plug it back in to get the pointer to move again. I've tried 3 different usb ports. Keyboard works fine the whole time. It seems like a software problem, but it's not happening on my home machine
(also running etch on amd64).

It looks like a config problem, which happens with usb mice.
Are there any other aspects?
Is gpm involved?

Two ways to fix it:

Adjust config of xserver-xorg;
Install gpm, which isn't a bad idea anyway, and the config of that gives comprehensive treatment of usb mice.

I had a intermittent USB mouse/keyboard non-responding prob and it turned out to be due to me allowing the BIOS to overclock my AMD64 chip....
