Hi List,

I am having problems with using my mouse in text mode.  It works fine in
XFree86.  But in text mode, every time that the mouse is moved, it's
drawn like a magnet to the top right corner, and acts as if I'm clicking
buttons repeatedly (basically the same as if there is an intermittent
break in the mouse cord).  If I leave the mouse alone, it doesn't
interfere.  Then again, it doesn't help either.

I have Microsoft IntelliMouse 1.2A.

Does anybody have any ideas on this?  If not, I'm going to commit it as
a bug.
