I should have mentioned that this happens every time on the X61. Also the
mouse is plugged directly into a usb connector on the machine -- no hub
I just tried the same experiment with an HP desktop I have that is now also
running 8.1 RELEASE. This machine has a Microsoft wireless mouse plugged
into an unpowered KVM switch. The problem I'm seeing with the laptop does
not occur with this machine -- the mouse works after restarting X.
