YES! It coincided with switching out my motherboard/CPU from an
Athlon to a Pentium D 805, so I was thinking it was probably a
hardware issue. I'm relieved someone else is having the same problem.
I'm also having a problem with my USB keyboard in that single key
presses are being repeated several times (i.e., I type 'y' and see
'yyyyy' show up in the terminal). Also, occasionaly when I plug in a
USB hard drive, my mouse and keyboard both become unresponsive and
I don't have any idea what's causing it, but I'd be happy to be a test
subject to resolve it.
i use an athlon xp with nforce2 (asus a7n8x-dlx) mobo in combination
logitech mx 310 usb mouse.
would be *great* to sort this out!
i tried enabling/disabling compositing of the x server and software
cursor in nvidia graphics drivers, nothing has helped so far.
it may have started looong time ago when the animated fedora swirl has
been added to the cursor theme but that is really a guess.
