Actually there is an error in the patch I sent in my last e-mail, this one 
works (just one line change patch :-)). It was more simpler fix than I have 
thought.

The debugging output was better, still it didn't contain enough 
information for me to find out what exactly is happening (probably too 
small buffer still?).

From your patch I guess that there is a separate HID device in the system 
which only produces the confusing usages and nothing else, and is 
completely separate from the "normal" system mouse, right? I'd need this 
described in the patch changelog.

	I do not think so, the last debugging output also covers some seconds before 
I switch the bluetooth mouse on. This mouse is problematic, in Windows XP 
installed on my notebook it is sluggish, in Windows 7 installed in my 
brother's notebook it is over accelerated (?!). Only when using input session 
in Linux it works as expected, or almost as expected, sometimes the cursor 
moves to the upper-left corner, but that is not often and I can live with 
that.

	Well, I think my USB hub has confused you. I have this USB hub, which has 
three USB 1.1 ports and two PS/2 ports, each PS/2 port is mapped to a HID 
device in Linux. I also have a PS/2 keyboard attached to one of those PS/2 
ports and it is it that is sending the keyboards events in the dmesg output. 
Even disconnecting the USB does not help, actually I bought this USB this year 
and I have this problem in Linux for more than two years (since hid session 
was made default instead of input session in kernel 2.6.22). I have this 
notebook for almost four years and since the begining input session has always 
worked as expected, better than in Windows too.

	To make things clearer to see I restarted my notebook, disconnected the USB 
hub, see the attached dmesg output. Lines 2660.752077 until 2666.779123 shows 
the bluetooth controller being activated. Even though there is a timeout here 
it works after 10 to 15 seconds after pressing bluetooth switch on button. 
After controller was turned on I switched on the mouse, line 2711.077714 is 
the first one that shows something about the mouse.

Hi all,

	Any news about my last patch? It is just one line only, could you add it to 
the mainline kernel?

Hi,

could you please resend your patch? It has either been lost somewhere on 
the way, or in the dark depths of my inbox, so I am not really sure which 
one you are referring to, sorry.

Thanks,
