I'm working on importing the NetBSD sources (this particular part of the code 
has been out of sync for a while, so it's going to take a bit of time) which 
I believe may fix this problem.  You might want to search the hardware list 
for a small patch by Markus Wild (Fix for Logitech DiNovo cordless mouse) 
that might fix this problem.
