hello soeren, after some time,
have tried -trial and error- to eliminate the possiblities of the cause
of my unpredictable unstable PS2 mouse (ImPS/2).
last time it froze was while compiling mplayer (from the hungarian site.
some trouble too before, when scrolling mozilla and firefox (flash and
java and kaffeine-plugin included) *but* that seems to disappear when i
got rid of an earlier install (also compiled) of mplayer.
to get things really straight: i installed 'pure' sarge/stable instead
of testing)on a spare hd, kernel 2.4.27-2-i386, precompiled. so it seems
there is some bug (?) in mplayer that causes this problem on my machine,
with some indication of a possible generalization of this problem to
other machines like yours.
by the way: other ps2 mice (of my youngest son and the computer of my
wife are freezing too.
this is not conclusive, i know. but i am leaving for a holiday tomorrow
and i will prceed searching the first of september. maybe you have got
some news by now? for the time being i went back from ImPS/2 to PS/S in
