I can echo that I *have* had this problem before.

I think the protocol used to communicate between the mouse and the bus 
(imps2) requires a persistent connection...if interrupted, the mouse 
starts to behave completely erratically.  Changing the protocol to 
standard ole "ps2" seems to get rid of this, but will not let you use 
the wheel.

If your imps2 connection gets messed up, I've found that restarting X 
seems to restore it.
