After I upgraded the following packages my mouse stopped working properly:

[2009-01-03 03:10] upgraded hwdetect (2008.12-3 -> 2008.12-4)
[2009-01-03 03:10] upgraded libdc1394 (2.0.1-1 -> 2.0.3-1)
[2009-01-03 03:10] upgraded libexif (0.6.16-1 -> 0.6.17-1)
[2009-01-03 03:10] upgraded mcpp (2.6.4-2 -> 2.7.2-1)

I have to press the left click button 3-4 times to make a click. Sometimes it works with only one press, but that's rare. It simply doesn't register the event properly. The other buttons work as expected and the mouse isn't broken physically. I tried downgrading hwdetect to 2008.12-3 with no success. This problem isn't specific to X11, since it doesn't work with gpm either.

Additional info:

The mouse is a Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000 on USB.

I also tried this:

$ lsmod|grep mouse
psmouse 38288 0

Why isn't the module used and is it the right module?
This task depends upon
