About a week ago, I did a kernel upgrade. When I rebooted the system, X
wouldn't run, and the mouse cursor was locked in position. I installed
another kernel and rebooted. X came up fine, but the mouse still
wouldn't work.

I spent an hour digging through logs, unloading and loading modules and
so on, before I determined it was the battery in the mouse[1].

What Lisi is saying is that just because two things happened at the
same time, _does not mean_ that they are related.
