After service gpm restart, the system bogs down and inputattach takes
up all cpu.

Actual Results: Entire system slows down to a complete crawl and you
must issue a killall inputattach to get system back.
Expected Results: Everything is peachy.
Other errors: /etc/init.d/gpm: line 44: /etc/sysconfig/gpm: No such
file or directory
no sysconfig/gpm file is in gpm rpm
I have tried using system-config-mouse and tested every Logitech mouse
selection in the menu and the bug occurs with every Logitech selection
(I have a logitech mouse, but not sure what kind). Setting mouse type
to generic ps/2 3-button mouse fixes the bug.

don't use the logitech settings-- that refers to OLD logitech mice
