Description Jim Bradbury 2003-04-30 18:57:57 UTC

Description of problem:
Problem: Every few seconds the mouse freezes and does not come back.

This problem happened during the installation process and continues
to happen every few seconds now that Red Hat Linux 9 is up and running.
This problem make Red Hat 9 totally unusable.  This is an upgrade from
Red Hat 8.0 where the problem did not occur.

Information:  When mouse freezes, I can do a <CTRL-ALT-F1> and then
a <CTRL-ALT-F7> and continue where I left off for a few more seconds.

When I do a <CTRL-ALT-F1> I have seen the following error message:
"(nautilus:1671) Eel-WARNING **: emit_event() returning FALSE!"

Platform is Intel Motherboard with 1.9 GHz Pentium 4 processor.
Mouse is Microsoft Intellimouse with IntelliEye 1.0

I have done a mouseconfig back and forth between Generic 3-Button
PS/2 and Microsoft Intellimouse drivers.
The nautilus error message above only happened when using the 
Microsoft Intellimouse driver.  No error msgs have been seen
while using the Generic 3-Button PS/2 driver but the mouse freeze
problem error still persists.

Red Hat 9 is worthless to me in it's current state.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Linux 9

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Red Hat 9

Actual Results:  See Description

Expected Results:  See Description

The nautilus message has nothing to do with this. Reassigning to XFree86.

Comment 2 Jim Bradbury 2003-06-08 04:58:04 UTC
Problem was found to be caused by a defective MS Optical Intellimouse 1.0 that was
causing the mouse coordinates to go out of range.  MS Windows compensates for
this problem and just had a momentary pause. RedHat 9 could not handle this and
locks up.
