irritating problem...



hi all,
i'm pretty new here, and have a problem which is probably quite easy to solve, but dont know how!
about once a week, when i left click with the mouse while pressing shift, the mouse completely hangs. I end up having to ctrl-alt-bsp and restarting X to get it working again. it's a microsoft usb optical mouse on a dell 4550. i'm running fedora core2 with the kernel upgraded to 2.6.8-1. i haven't upgraded gnome or anything.
i dont really want to restart X everytime it happens, but i wouldnt mind restarting the mouse server (or whatever software it is that does the i/o for the mouse). so here's my question: how do i just 'restart' the mouse?? btw i do have full keyboard access and can navigate to a bash console with it whenever it happens.


any help much appreciated!
thanks,
birju
