It's making me crazy :-)

Xubuntu 64bit 11.10. My mouse is scrolling without being touched. I scroll up or down, and the mouse just keeps going, or switches direction.

Happens with Microsoft 2.4ghz mouse wireless laser mouse 6000 v2, and Logitech M705. Happens in Firefox, Chrome, and in desktop shell (scrolling through apps on taskbar)

It sometimes fixes itself on reboot. Sometimes not. Any suggestions on where to start?

I have to scroll by dragging the scroll bar and it's maddening!

Here is the necessary hardware information.

Mine does this on a reflective/refractive surface. Try mouse on top of a few sheets of paper... still happening? –  user8290 Jan 31 '12 at 22:49
