Description of problem:
My machine is an IBM Thinkpad PC with a built-in touchpoint and a Microsoft
Intellimouse USB not configured by kudzu (I selected ignore on bootup). XFree86
is configured to use the USB mouse as a secondary non-core pointer by default
and it's not possible to wake up X from the screensaver just solely by using it.
The cursor, in fact, becomes visible but the screensaver continues to run.
This bug is quite old now. Given the lack of activity on this report and the
likelihood that this bug has already been fixed, I am going to close it. If you
encounter the problem discussed in this report with Fedora Core 3 or a recent
version of xscreensaver, feel free to reopen.
