Me too. Have had this problem since I got a "Intellimouse" PS/2 wheel-mouse. (It worked fine with previous mice (no wheel)).
With any scheduler in 5-CURRENT and even more frequent in 4-STABLE, IIRC. 
Using moused or not doesn't make a difference.
Get these messages on console: "psmintr: out of sync", and the mouse freezes then goes wild for a few seconds.
Can happen under load and sometimes when closing Mozilla (not often).
It could be related to the psm-driver. Or maybe I have a bad mouse, I don't know.
I will try another mouse, but it does work perfectly in Linux and Windogs...
