I didn't reboot my pc yet, so I'm still running a 2.4.20 without any problem
with my mouse. but when I will boot on the 2.5.70, what I should do to find
where does the bug come from. I'm little but new here, so I never try to

Jugglers, like programmers, handle objects which, at first sight, seem complex 
and difficult to control. Some of them, with time and patience, manage to 
control one or the other or both at the same time, and thus become aware of 
what they are doing.
