runaway mouse...

You know on notebooks with trackball mice (eraser head..?), how they always tend to start moving in any given direction by themselves (at least mine do).

One time it started running really bad so i tried to switch to a console to see if that would help but I accidentally hit ALT+F6 and it stopped like 2 seconds later. Now every time it starts running I do that and it stops shortly after I press ALT+F6.

I was wondering, has anyone else had this happen to them..? Is mine the only one it works on..?
