I've also seen this when I've tried to hot plug mice.  This includes
when power is lost to my KVM switch.  When that happens, I gotta
reboot all the machines that are attached to it since something is
whacko at that point, I get those messages, or worse no mice and no
message at all.

I know one isn't supposed to hot plug mice, but there are times when
one is using a KVM switch when it sure would be nice to reset the
driver.  Hmmm, there's a psmdetach.  Is there anyway to force a device
to be detached?  I know unloading the driver will do it, but one can't
unload the driver compiled into the kernel, can one?  And even if you
could, I'd run the risk of loading a driver that doesn't match my
