  1. Bug#498066: psmouse module is not the cause

    I did an additional test to determine if psmouse's lost synchronization
    errors were the cause of the random freezes.

    I blacklisted the psmouse kernel module at /etc/modprobe.d/ and
    eventually my laptop froze until I pressed a key. Unfortunately, there
    were not any error messages either on dmesg or /var/log/messages.

    So the problem does not reside on psmouse kernel module. I think that
    some people complaining about these errors all over the Internet may be
    facing the same problem than me but masked by the psmouse's lost sync
    complaints.

  2. Bug#498066: Info received (psmouse module is not the cause)

    I left the computer alone while running 'top' and waited until it froze.
    Just after I touched a key the system (kernel) CPU usage banged up to
    50%, which seems to mean that eats up all the cycles from one of the
    processors (It's a Core 2 Duo).

    Please tell me if there is any other test I can do to help locating the
    issue. Now I ran out of ideas.
