acpi-polling: mouse goes wild

From: Raphael Bosshard (

Hi there!

Whenever I start a program that frequently polls for acpi-information
(eg. the Gnome Battstat Monitor), my mouse goes wild. The cursor starts
jumping and keeps dancing around until I kill the application.

I'm currently using kernel version 2.5.70 but I had the problem also in
earlier versions.

Oh, my computer is a Acer Travelmate 220.

Do you need further information? Can you help me? ;)

Any help is appreciated.
