I had a similar problem before, and wasn't sure what the problem was.

however I found that disabling gpm resolved the problem.

After further investigation, i found that on some motherboards, if the
mouse is set up as a PS2 mouse, but is in actual fact a USB then this
problem occurs.

I resolved it by dissabling gpm (chkconfig --level 345 gpm off), then
starting up and configuring the mouse (redhat-config-mouse
service-config-mouse) and making sure it was USB, then re-enabling gpm
every thing worked fine.
