           Summary: endless loop when setting up mouse with XInput
           Product: Xfce
           Version: 4.4.2
          Platform: PC (x86)
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: Medium
         Component: xfce-mcs-plugins
        AssignedTo: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
        ReportedBy: wolfgang.oertl at gmail.com

I have experienced similar problems as bug #927 describes - which was closed
due to insufficient feedback from the initial reporter.  After login on slim
(the display manager), xfce4 starts but xfce-mcs-manager goes into a 100% cpu
loop.  Eventually I can do something but everything is very slow.

  I have the XInput extension, and a Wacom tablet is attached. Some debugging
shows an endless loop in mouse_plugin.c in function set_xinput_mouse_values. 
The reason is obvious, using the same variable in an outer and iner loop.  Duh!

This hasn't been fixed in SVN head yet. I'll attach a patch for 4.4.2 but it
should apply to SVN too.
