Do we have one of these in house anywhere?
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2003-09-11 18:53:19 EDT
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.  
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-09-22 16:43:01 EDT
Closing since I cannot reproduce this.  Please reopen this bug report if you
have a reproducible test case once the next beta comes out.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2003-11-19 10:29:30 EST
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.
Comment 5 Marc Deslauriers 2003-11-19 18:07:50 EST
I have this exact bug on my Thinkpad T40.
Anything I can test?
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2003-12-08 15:04:16 EST
jrb: ping?
Comment 7 Jonathan Blandford 2003-12-08 15:38:58 EST
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.
