I'll take a look and check in a fix.

Rather worrying. I'm pretty sure this hasn't been happening for me (at
least until quite recently). I'll give it a go myself and see what
happens --- if I can't reproduce it then I'll need to know more about
your setup (eg. kernel configurations and command lines).

Also what's the most recent Changeset in your build tree (bk sccslog).

I've definitely had one of those mice working when plugged into the
PS/2 port (*not* the USB port!).

See some recent threads on xen-devel. I've just checked in some fixes
to vbd support to teh xeno-unstable.bk repository.

I'll look at 2.6 when it's more stable. I think that's a few months
away at least. Inclusion in a later Linux development cycle would be
great if we build up a good-sized user community; we'll have to see
how it goes.

No, these bugs are all news to me :-( :-(
