Does anyone happen to know what's causing this?
Windows XP original release (i.e. SP zero) is fine (connecting using
VNC). As soon as you install SP2:
1) Windows Hardware Mangler shows two mice - a PS/2 and a QEMU HID
2) There's a mystery PCI device.
3) After a few seconds the mouse pointer sticks. If you disable and
enable the QEMU mouse it comes back for a few (~30) seconds and sticks
again. (There's no option to disable the PS/2 one). It feels like Plug
and Pray "finds" it and screws it up again.
4) SP3 doesn't fix it. I haven't tried it with SP1.
Fortunately the keyboard is fine and I'm used to using that for most
It's bugging me - does anyone know what I need to enable/disable and how?
