I can confirm this problem is still exhbiting with "Linux serpentine
2.6.15-23-k7 #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue May 23 14:20:54 UTC 2006 i686
GNU/Linux". I have a Logitech Bluetooth Desktop pack, so my keyboard and
mouse (MX900) both run off bluetooth.

Some new information: The problem affects the bluetooth mouse as well.
Also the mouse will move for a very short time after gdm/X is loaded.
This problem could be related to the bluetooth subsystem, however I
wasn't aware that Linux was loading the bluetooth subsystem. Even with
bluez installed Linux can't recognise the receiver, which does work as a
dongle in Windows. The mouse and keyboard run fine without bluetooth
support in the OS, as exhibited by keyboard support in the BIOS.

I am using a constantly updated Dapper Flight 6.
