Please read the handbook on the proper form for problem reports. In the
future, you might want to include the following:

- uname -a
- boot -s output
- a trace, if available on the first vt or serial console.
- your kernel config file of the running system.

When you say that your machine locks solid, are you in X11 when you're
plugging in the mouse? If so, it might really be panicking, it's just that
you don't get to see the message printed to the screen. The best way to
catch this class of problem is to hook up a serial console and perform
the voodoo that makes the machine "lock up".
