After seeing 107231, I switched from a PS2 mouse to USB and it works
fine. It's the same mouse, but I removed the USB to PS2 adapter and
plugged it directly into the USB slow. All seem well for now. May be
related to 107231, but the hardware is different.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-04-05 18:10:03 EDT
Can you hit ctrl-s right after X crashes and look at /tmp/X.log to see
what it says?  Also, what do we detect as your mouse type?
Comment 4 Nick Marsh 2004-04-05 19:14:33 EDT
I'm having a hard time recreating it. I could recreate it every time before I switched mice. 
Now that I have switched back (to using the USB mouse via PS2 adapter) I can't recreate it. I 
promise it was a bug.  Is it possable that I have a flaky mouse or PS2 port? Would that be 
capable of causing the errors I was getting?
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-04-11 13:21:05 EDT
It could be flaky hardware, yes.
Comment 6 Nick Marsh 2004-04-11 13:25:49 EDT
I was not able to recreate it after the mouse switch so I suppose we can write this one off. 
Although, I am concerned flaky mouse problem would cause X to crash like that. Anyway, 
thanks for your input and feel free to close this if you want.
