I am using a C840 right now, have had from Dapper through Edgy to
Feisty on it and I don't ever recall this mouse problem on it. I do use
it in a dock at work with a traditional mouse/keyboard through a KVM
unit (two desktop under the desk). Maybe the definition of a regular
mouse causes the Synaptic driver to work correctly?
Don't know, but this has been a great platform for Ubuntu.
