[ubuntu-us-ma] Ubuntu beta day - mouse problems

Unfortunately I no longer live in Mass or I would come and (try to?)
help test.  So could someone please test 10.4 for mouse problems?

A few months ago I upgrades from 8.10 to 9.4 and a day or so later to
9.10.  My mouse kept dying - first it wouldn't select a link or scroll
but would still select a new firefox tab.  Eventually it wouldn't even
do that and I had to reboot to solve the problem.  (I got good at
keyboard short-cuts.)  Thinking the cyber-gods were angry because I
hadn't done a clean install, I tried running 9.10 from a live CD, but
still had the same mouse problems.  I also tried whatever pre-release of
10.4 was available and had mouse problems.  I then tried a live CD of
9.4 and it worked fine so I did a clean install.  I'm using a Lenovo
3000-N200 and logitech optical mouse and had the same problems with my
antique corded mouse.

Thanks to all the smart people who make Ubuntu work for the rest of us.
