Shoot, I should have copy-pasted the bug description. Oh well, here goes:

"Anywhere between a few minutes and a few hours, the mouse buttons stop
responding. The mouse itself keeps moving and remains visible.

The trigger is when moving the mouse between two xinerama screens.
No messages about this are logged in Xorg.0.log, messages, or any other log
In this state xev does not see any mouse events.

When X is restarted the mouse buttons are recognized again.
Another recovery is running a synergy server locally and connecting to it with
the client. Note that this only works when running synergyc from the konsole in
one of the xinerama screens. Doing the exact same thing in the other screen has
no effect."

I can confirm this bug and I am still affected by it.

Could this please be added to the package as requested?

is this still an issue with the latest xorg?

Nope, as far as I can tell it's fixed. :) You can close it, I think.
