Mouse pointer suddenly act very strange!

After a reboot the mouse pointer suddenly started to act very strange...
For example horizontal movements move the pointer verically and moving it to the left also scolls down... left click and right click still works, but not the scroll wheel.

I have not done any changes related to X (X11R7).

The mouse is a wireless usb logitech mouse, with this "nano reciever"-thing. It has worked without any configuration before.

I have not tested any other mouse as this is my only one. I will try to get another mouse for testing.

Please help me with this!

Do NOT load module usbmouse! (only usbhid)
I think I messed up the modprobe.d files...

Well, if you think nothing changed on your machine it is worth thinking about the mouse itself:
For example: Have you tried changing the batteries? Or perhaps testing the mouse with another computer or OS?

Ok, now I've tested with another mouse and it does work.

I also tested this "faulty" mouse on another computer and it worked.

So it is only on this computer it does not work!

Could it be something with the modules loaded? As I can recall I unloaded some modules using "rmmod" and also "modprobe -r", but is not the modules reloaded after a reboot?

And it is strange because other usb mice works, it is just this one!

If it helps /dev/input/mice is showing wrong, for example vertical movement or scrolling is not reported.
So it should not be an Xorg problem, right?
