Description of problem:
I am on an IBM iSeries ThinkPad. I'll just be innocently using the system and
then the keyboard and mouse will lock up. The rest of the system doesn't appear
to stop working (pages finish loading, etc), but those become irrelevant as I
cant use them.
The fix for this is to reboot as I can't control alt backspace.

Steps to Reproduce:
I am unsure. They arbitrarily come up.
Can you attach your X log file and X config file from after a crash, prior
to starting up X again? Also your /var/log/messages file.

Abbreviated message file
Attaching the message file which was requested. This is slightly abbreviated,
as I deleted a few lines from it (old). As a note, this 1.1MB more of the Dec
14 18:12:38 kbreit kernel: ide-scsi: (IO,CoD) != (0,1) while issuing a packet
Dec 14 18:12:38 kbreit kernel: hdc: ATAPI reset complete. A lot of it is still
intact, but I pulled a lot of it as well.

My XF86 log file
I should note that the attachments weren't from a lockup which the bug
describes. However, the keyboard stopped working, the mouse didn't. It was
similar behavior, so I'm wondering if the attached files could give a clue or four.
To troubleshoot a crash problem, it helps to have logs _from_ the crash.
This doesn't look like an XFree86 problem to me at any rate. It's either
a kernel issue, a hardware issue, or some odd mix of unsupported drivers
or something perhaps. Reassigning to kernel component for comment.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
