[Bug 993655] Re: Unity looses mouse click handler when using enabling USB headset


*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1006156 ***

I can confirm this bug with a Corsair VOID RGB wireless headset. 
Mouse movement works all the time but sometimes (every 15 min ca.) mouse clicks are not recognized any more till I switch tty with strg+alt+F1 and back to seven.

Im using XUbuntu 15.04 and really want to help.
But I dont know where to look for debug outputs.

Can someone help me ?
Which informations are required to debug this ?

Bug description:
  I have a Plantronics D100 headset.

  When I press the button on the headset to enable it, Unity looses its
  click handler, in that it can not click and drag windows.

  The cursor is visible and moves just fine. I can switch applications
  using Alt+Tab, and I can launch new applications using the keyboard.
  But I cannot close the existing window, or change focus to another
  window by using the mouse.

  The Headset microphone and speaker work just fine!

  Tested this on a laptop and desktop machine. Both running Ubuntu

  The headset I'm using is a Plantronics D100 unit.
