From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; AT&T CSM6.0)

Description of problem:
when installing or upgrading to ver. 7.1, mouse driver that installs 
causes mouse cursor to move to upper-right corner of screen.  It will not 
move from this corner.  I am using a Microsoft Optical Wheel mouse through 
a Linksys 2-port KVM switch

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Install of RH 7.1
2. Move mouse
3. Watch cursor move to upper-right corner of screen

Actual Results:  mouse cursor moved to upper right corner of screen

Expected Results:  cursor should have tracked nicely around screen to 
follow movement of mouse

Additional info:

cannot even choose another driver, other than a generic one

Having the same issue with a Logitech TrackMan Wheel through a Belkin Omni View 
SE 2-port KVM switch.

It's hard to fully support all KVMs since many of them behave differently.  I
think the behavior you are seeing is caused by some interaction between the KVM
and wheel mice.  Some KVMs send the signals correctly and some apparently do
not.  At any rate, there's nothing I can do to fix the problem.
