    i have a similar symptom; i have a logitech mouseman and i believe
    it is a bug in X' handling of the mouseman protocol (but i have no
    tests to base this theory on :-)

    if i press the middle mouse button it unfreezes, which is an ok
    workaround for me. but the first couple of times it happened i
    was really worried.
