can't hotplug usb mouse

Hi. I have an optical microsoft mouse that I want to get to work with my custom built kernel (2.6.10-rc2). The mouse is recognized only when it is plugged into the computer at boot time, but stops working when I pull it out and reconnect.

What do I need to do to make it work anytime that I plug it in? I have USB Human Interface Devices driver compiled into the kernel. However, I'm not sure if my hotplug configuration is setup properly. I have CONFIG_HOTPLUG=y set in my kernel config and the hotplug package installed. Any ideas?
