Starts to make *me* wonder about a bug...

I'm currently running (and at the time of my failure):

Fedora 12 (Constantine)
Kernel Linux
GNOME 2.28.2
Evolution 2.28.3 (this is where I was working when my mouse hang
occurred and cleared when I force-quit the application -- nothing else

How about you Damon and Jim?

...Rich in Lilburn

Well, anecdotal but...yesterday playing with lxde and compiz, I
completely lost my mouse clicks for minutes, then they came back.
Perhaps we are seeing a bug.  Or they are unrelated.
