My mouse (logitech USB optical) quit working a after a few minutes (30
sec to 5 min) when running opengl in full screen. tested with Q3, cube

problem doesnt occur in windowd mode. Keyboard, dri etc works still
fine. Quiting the apps doesnt resolve the problem; no mouse until

moved when pressing a key (that's why it occured in q3 kind games).
Launching 'usbview' makes it work again, so i'm not sure that it's a
xorg bug. The previous workaround has no effect anymore...
Same as the kernel bug #124378 (or very similar).
the proposed solution (turning off the legacy USB emulation) works for
