The regression is from 2.6.32.
Comment 2 Dmitry Torokhov 2010-02-01 06:28:14 UTC
This is an issue with a userspace driver (which mouseemu package is) violating input protocol by suppressing all non-key events (which includes EV_SYN). I could think about trying to work around regular userspace application but requrements for drivers are higher and thus I am closing the issue as invalid. I was intending to create a patch to moueemu package instead but after looking at the source I just want the thing to dies as quickly as possible.
