Description Jonathan Briggs 2012-04-11 13:32:09 EDT
Description of problem:
The bluetooth mouse will stop working, apparently at random. It does not recover. Not even restarting the bluetooth service, or disconnecting and reconnecting the mouse fixes it in X.

The interesting thing is that doing a "cat /dev/input/mouse1" works perfectly. The mouse events are visible to the kernel.

In the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file, there are these messages whenever the mouse connection is reset:

[100147.444] (II) config/udev: Adding input device lynx’s mouse (/dev/input/mouse1)
[100147.444] (II) No input driver specified, ignoring this device.
