First and foremost, this problem only occurs when I compile one of the more recent Linux kernels (3.2.6 or 3.2.7). I do not have these issues when running the stock kernel 3.2.6 or 3.2.7 kernels under Debian or Arch Linux.

Approximately every 30 seconds, I get these connect / disconnect events:

Feb 22 23:17:46 local kernel: input: Logitech USB Optical Mouse as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.3/1-1.3:1.0/input/input9

Last but not least, the USB keyboard is detected and works on boot up, but if I reconnect it, it is ignored. I have compiled HID support into the kernel.

Any suggestions?

Problem solved by switching out mouse. Mouse functions properly, but it's a cheap optical that does the connection drop each time the LED goes out.
