Thats sounds really really really unusual, does it happen with any other
applications, e.g. gedit. 

Are you using KDE or GNOME ?

It almost sounds like spurious mouse events being generated from somewhere to
me, maybe even a broken mouse.
Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2006-04-21 10:41:54 EDT
sorry, you already said it happened with thunderbird/firefox
Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2006-04-24 05:38:21 EDT
Not OOo specific. Spurious mouse clicks I suspect.
Comment 4 James McManus 2006-04-24 06:57:35 EDT
I am using gnome. I do not been able to reproduce this problem with the gedit.
It seems to only effect OpenOffice, Thunderbird, FireFox, and I also had a
problem with ymessanger. Since it was associated with the first three apps, I
always thought it had something to do with Java, but never determined the actual
