Well, I bought and installed a new mouse. NO CHANGE.  One interesting 
thing that I did notice though is that the disconnects/re-connects occur 
almost exactly every 60 seconds.  I am not sure what to make of that.   
I am hoping that someone may know how to stop this from happening.  I 
believe the other alternative would be to turn off USB Support->USB 
verbose debug messages and USB announce new devices and rebuild the 
kernel. I believe that would at least eliminate the messages from 
constantly showing up.
