Description of problem:
The hardware browser in nautilus makes the mouse go nuts. loses all 
control. only an issuance of gpm restart seems to fix it... 
logging out and back in will also fix.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Nautilus
2. Go to System Settings
3. Open the hardware Browser
4. Watch the Fireworks

Actual Results:  the mouse lost all control, kept snapping down to the 
bottom left and seemingly randomly clicking during mouse movement. had a 
terminal open, alt-tabbed over to it and issued "/etc/init.d/gpm restart"
this fixed the problem.

Expected Results:  hardware browser should just open without mangling the 
mouse input.
