I'm using an old Logitech mouse (SBF69), a leftover from my PC days, and sometimes when I use the scroll wheel, the mouse goes crazy, starts moving vertically or horizontally on its own and doesn't respond to anything. I have to restart my computer each time. This happens pretty often (several times a week), and is very annoying. I'm not exactly sure what I do with the scroll wheel when this happens, but I can't "recreate" the problem on purpose. So it does seem like a bug of some sort. Curiously enough, I've also had the issue in Boot Camp XP.
