USB input devices fail on 6.10 release after working for a while.
System: Toshiba Satellite M105 Laptop
OS: Ubuntu 6.10 release, no major extensions except for the SUN jre. System was _upgraded_ from 6.06 this morning.
Symptoms: USB mice work at boot and after Gnome has finished loading. They continue to work for some period of time between 10 and 40 minutes, then all USB ports fail simultaneously. Devices that are plugged in at the time of failure appear to continue to receive power from the hardware. Devices that are plugged in after the failure don't receive power.
The laptop's touch pad continues to work throughout.
Rebooting solves the problem temporarily. I guess I should mention that both mice I've tried are labeled as Microsoft hardware, but USB is USB right?
