  Very weird mouse sticking issues when hid_ntrig is loaded

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm sorry but I have no idea where this bug is originating from, but
  was introduced in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

  The problem I'm having is:

  When I first log into my machine, everything is fine, but after a
  while, and for no apparent reason, some applications start acting
  stangely. Nautilus doesn't always react to my clicks when opening
  files or folders, once I finally am able to open a folder, an icon in
  the same place can be clicked on, whereas others are very un

  Some applications which have selectable texts in them (again,
  Nautilus's Help --> About is a good example), when running my mouse
  over it, will highlight the text until I click. Then the text is
  deselected, but will start highlighting again when the mouse is run
  over it.

  In places where there are "on/off" switches (Ubuntu settings program
  for example), moving my mouse over one of these switches will slide
  the switch across, (e.g. from off to on), but doesn't actually
  release, so no setting is changed.

  The hardware I'm using is an HP Touchsmart TX2 notebook, with a
  synaptics touchpad and an ntrig duo touch screen. The bug affects all
  three inputs (touchpad, touchscreen and pen input). I'm using the
  Radeon graphics driver.


  This does not seem to affect KDE applications, but only apps running
  though GTK3. In GTK2 apps (such as Pidgin), right clicking is

  Logging out and logging in fixes the issue temporally, but will later
  return. It's almost as if the system thinks the left mouse button is
  pressed down, but only on some apps.

  The bug is present in 12.04 LTS 12.04.1 and 12.10 Beta 1
