Description Need Real Name 2001-01-06 20:42:55 UTC
I have an MS IntelliEye mouse.  It is set up on a PS/2 port, and the type
is set to imps2.  It seems to function OK as expected.  However, if I move
the mouse too quickly on the screen, the mouse goes crazy and the cursor
tries to hug the upper-right corner of my screen.  If I try to move the
cursor away,  it jumps back. The mouse is totally useless at this point. 
There is NOTHING I know of to reacquire any control of the mouse.  If I try
to restrart gpm with the imps2 "type" parameter, it still does not work. 
My only recourse is to reboot.

I'm not sure if there is any relationship, but this seems similar to that
described in Debian Bug report log- #70004.
