USB Mouse woes (FC1, 2.4.22-1.2188.nptl kernel)
When I set this machine up, I chose a USB mouse because it had the best ergonomic factor for my (fairly large) hand. It generally works fine; set up during installation had detected it with no problems at all, no extra work was needed to get it working under either of X or gpm.

However, it has always had a slight "quirk", one that has been getting worse of late. Occassionally, it just dies. There's a light in the mouse, and the light goes out. The mouse is no longer "on". I have to reach behind the case, unplug the mouse, and re-insert the plug. These events cause the kernel to re-load the relevant USB drivers, and the mouse starts to work again. But in the last few days, it's dropped off like this upwards of 6 times. At one point, it died twice in as many minutes.

Any suggestions?
