Installer segfaults during mouse detection

I would be unable to install RH 6.1.
I solved this problem by plugging a Logitech mouse

happening during the installation process. If you
point me to a stand-alone version of the mouse detection
program, I can let you know exactly where it fails (and
I believe this is the Logitech Cordless Wheel Mouse or the Cordless
Desktop (the mice for these are interchangeable).
Not able to replicate in test lab. Try the latest cut of the installer and see
if you are still having problems. Please reopen bug if you are still
