  After 11.10 > 12.04 upgrade on Thinkpad W520 - mouse input broken

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After upgrading from 11.10 to 12.04 on a Thinkpad W520 system all
  mouse/pointer input devices (on this machine that includes the so-
  called 'TrackPoint pointing stick', a 'TouchPad', and, what I actually
  use, a generic wireless USB mouse) fail to work properly if the laptop
  is in it's docking station. The pointer is 'stuck' along the left edge
  of the screen. The pointer can be moved vertically, but not
  horizontally. If the laptop is removed from it's docking station then
  'mouse' devices appear to function normally.

  In previous Ubuntu releases, I have not needed to do anything for the
  docking station to work.

  FWIW, my normal set up is the laptop in a docking station with two
  ViewSonic VX2450wm LED monitors in a 'twinview' mode, and a wireless
  USB keyboard and mouse. The laptop itself has a Nvidia Quadro 1000M
  graphics device. None of the mouse devices are attached to the docking
