Description of problem:
Both mouseconfig (when invoked at boot time by kudzu) and hwbrowser see my
IntelliMouse as a "Microsoft Microsoft IntelliMouse". kudzu also claims, when I
choose to configure it, that it's "Configuring Microsoft Microsoft". hwbrowser
also claims "Manufacturer: Unknown". There could be more than one bug here; if I
should re-file any of these as separate bugs, let me know. Also, I don't know if
hwdata is the guilty component, but I couldn't think of anything better.
Version-Release number of a bunch of components that might be relevant for all I
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach MS IntelliMouse to a machine which has previously only seen PS/2 mice.
2. Boot machine.
3. Hit all the defaults in the kudzu prompts. During this step you'll get to see
"Microsoft Microsoft IntelliMouse" and "Configuring Microsoft Microsoft".
4. Wait for machine to finish boot (to GDM).
5. Log in.
6. Start hwbrowser (either from a terminal or through the menus).
7. Click on Pointing Devices.
Actual Results: See above.
Expected Results: "Microsoft IntelliMouse"
"Configuring Microsoft IntelliMouse" or "Configuring IntelliMouse"
"Manufacturer: Microsoft" (or the equivalent), not unknown
I'd set the Severity to low, except I don't want to see "Configuring Microsoft
Microsoft" joining the ranks of "PC Load Letter", "Keyboard Not Present, Press
<F1> to continue", and similar messages.

I just noticed something odd with the copy-and-paste so I'm attaching it too
This seems to be fixed in Fedora Cora 0.94. (It could have been fixed in Red Hat
9 for all I know, but I never got a chance to test for this bug under that release.)
I'm not sure what resolution would be best for this bug; I guess I'll just go
with RAWHIDE. (If it wasn't fixed in rawhide this time around, maybe it was
fixed in rawhide during the RHL 9 development cycle. ;)
