Description of problem:
I have a USB mouse:

  Microsoft 5-Button Mouse with IntelliEye(TM)

After a few minutes of activity, the mouse stops working.  It is an
optical mouse, and the light goes off.  Unplugging the mouse and then
plugging it back in causes it to work again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run X
2.Web browse and use an xterm
3.Witness the doom of the mouse

dmesg output

This shows the dmesg output including the output from a few hangs and reinserts
of the mouse.

lsusb output

lsusb output, hopefully including some useful information about the mouse.  It
is plugged into the front of the PC.

The X log file, maybe there is some interaction with X that causes this?
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-15 03:24:30 EST
X just reads data from /dev/input/mice and does not control the
USB hardware directly.  It's unlikely to be a problem with interaction
with X IMHO, because X just uses standard kernel interfaces.  If it
requires unplugging the device and plugging it back in, it sounds
like something is broken in kernel-driver land IMHO.
Comment 5 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:41:50 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
