This happens here too. But not that frequent at all, more like once every
hour. And has happend on all kernels since at least 2.5.46 [1].

However 5 hours ago I changed the timeout in psmouse.c from 50ms to 100ms.
And now it haven't misbehaved yet, but that might be just some nightly luck.
Is there something that turns off interupts or something and hinders the
mouse driver from processing the data for such long time? Or is my hardware
just buggy?
