Description Pete Chown 1999-02-25 19:53:01 UTC
If you have a machine with a PS/2 mouse port but a serial
mouse, probing will incorrectly identify your mouse as a
PS/2 type.  For some reason, if this happens and you then
start the X server, the machine will freeze so badly that
the reset button is the only way out.
