That's depressing :-(  

I repeated the conditions today and sure enough me playing frozen-bubble
while the kids played supertux brought this old 450MHz PII to its knees
and I had a frozen mouse and "veryniced" frozen-bubble unresponsive on
my screen.  Had to kill X to get the mouse back because sadly your
suggestion was not effective, Tim (see below).  However, while
researching the matter I came across this line:

	gpm -m /dev/input/mice -t imps2 (running as root)

If I gave that a shot at a terminal I wonder if I'd get my mouse back?
I'll let you know, next time I "reproduce" the bug :-)
