           Summary: wheel doesn't works on a usb mouse
    Kernel Version: 2.5.59-bk2
            Status: NEW
          Severity: low

Distribution: debian sid  
Hardware Environment: via kt-400, athlon xp 2000
Problem Description:
I have a logitech optical usb mouse,
the problem is that the 2.5.59-bk2 kernel doesn't see the wheel
(on the same system, the wheel works perfectly under 2.4.21-pre4).
I noticed that trying to "cat /proc/input/mice" while moving the
mouse return some strange symbol unless i try to move the wheel.

Steps to reproduce:
plug in the mouse :-)

ps I use devfs support.
