  Naw, this happens on my home machine and work machine alike, both Dells. I
  have been a programmer since 1968 and know the difference between hardware
  and software problems. The woman who sits down the hall for me and puts out
  a department newsletter won't use a mouse in any Win95 applications,
  because the behavior is so flakey.
