Question logitech wireless mouse interference

I am a relatively new Linux user...using Suse 8.2 on an AMD Athlon machine with nforce chipset. Works all great but now I encountered a little problem.
I had my PC at my friends place sitting side by side with his computer. He was running Windows XP at that moment and we both had Logitech mouseman wireless optical connected to the usb. It turned out that when he moved his mouse mine would kind of stall. So it seems that his mouse movement signal interferes with my receiver in a way that my mouse can#t be read properly. We then did several resets of the mouse-to-receiver connecttion (thinking maybe it just has to find a better frequency to be not interfered) without success. then we switched the hardware in several steps.

It turns out that on the windows PC no interference ever happened while no matter with which receiver or with wich mouse under Linux the interference could always be observed.

This must be a software/driver issue because the hardware is proved working properly.

Does anybody know the solution to this problem?
