You could verify this with "DISPLAY=:0 xinput list" when the mouse
pointer stops.  If you don't see the bluetooth mouse in the list, then
the kernel is refusing to re-plug it right.  If you _do_ see the mouse
in the list, then X is confused somewhere.

Does keyboard navigation still work when this happens?  Does alt-tab
switch windows, etc.
