Description Mykel Alvis 2006-01-31 14:54:07 UTC
As per bug #3113. Precisely same effects.  Eventually the mouse sticks to the
left side of the screen.   I labeled this a blocker per #3113

I'm unsure if my keyboard debounce problem is related to this somehow. I'm
having severe debounce problems, with up to 6 of the same character showing up
with the briefest of keypresses.

I have the proprietary nVidia driver installed

I'm using a fully updated FC4 installation 2,6,14-1.1656_FC4smp.  I'm unsure of
how to get the actual X version.
Comment 1 Mykel Alvis 2006-01-31 15:04:58 UTC
Located my version.  xorg-x11-Xdmx.i386   6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2

and xorg-x11-Xnest.i386 same version
Comment 2 Mykel Alvis 2006-01-31 15:08:02 UTC
Found version.  Current FC4 release.
Comment 3 shishz 2006-02-18 15:32:24 UTC
this bug is easily triggered when I start cisco vpnclient v4.8.  soon after
connection, the mouse will be grabbed and forced to the left of the screen and
exhibit the characteristics described in bug #3113.

This is a FC4 machine fully updated as of Feb 17:

IBM AT Keyboard & Toshiba PS/2 mouse.

Comment 5 shishz 2006-03-13 12:33:10 UTC
I'm on linux so I don't think that patch is applicable (bsd_mouse.c)?  Right?

I did try the patch described here:


and I am able to successfully use the cisco vpnclient without the mouse being

Just to confirm.
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3113#c9 did resolve your issue?
Comment 7 shishz 2006-04-20 00:02:42 UTC
yes.  The patch in:


does resolve my issue.  I recently upgraded to FC5 and I experienced the same
issue there too and used the same above patch to resolve it.
