Test No 1: See if the mouse runs as root user.  If it does, there is 
something corrupted in the user installation.  In that case, go into the 
Control Center and add a fake user (assuming you have but one user account) 
and then "delete" the old user (but don't delete the files).  Rename the 
files to ~(HOME.old - use a terminal window) and then set up a new user (with 
the old user name.  Delete the fake user and files (if you want) and then 
check out your user account.  Copy critical files from ~(HOME.old) to ~(HOME) 
and, if everything's fine in a few weeks, you can delete the ~(HOME.old)
