At first I was laboring under the assumption that this was an
SMP-related problem and, while intensely irritating on my box "zippy",
I figured it would at least only bite a small number of people and
only in -current.
Now I've switched over to a single-CPU box running RELENG_4 and this
problem is, indeed, very much there. It's a really _bad_ problem
given that the mouse goes absolutely nuts during these intervals
and you *will* have bogus contents selected and pasted into your
xterms at random intervals. Depending on what was cut and pasted,
the results could be pretty nasty.
Hmmm, I haven't been able to recreate this problem in my 5-CURRENT
and 4-STABLE boxes so far... Ok, I will try to test on other boxes.
I'm almost tempted to declare this a show-stopper for FreeBSD 4.1.
Is anyone else even able to reproduce this?
To really feel its effects under X, enable and use moused, otherwise
you can still feel its effects even if you use the PS/2 mouse device
