Do we have one of these in house anywhere?
I have never seen this behavior on any of our machines, although we don't have
this exact model laptop in house that I know of.
I'm confused as to why the mouse would not work with firstboot but it works once
the desktop start up. The only thing I can think of is maybe there's some rhgb
interaction that makes the mouse go wonky since firstboot inherits rhgb's X server.
Without a reproducable test case, I'm not sure how to proceed here.
Closing since I cannot reproduce this. Please reopen this bug report if you
have a reproducible test case once the next beta comes out.
jrb: Could this be a rhgb/kudzu interaction problem? I've seen a
number of reports on the mailing lists about this and it only seems to
happen on Thinkpads.
I have this exact bug on my Thinkpad T40.
Anything I can test?
There are a number of bugs on mice not working in rhgb with thinkpads.
I'd initially guess it's an X bug of some sort.
