Mouse blocked in drag and drop mode

Bug Description

With Ubuntu 12.04, during this month, (May 2012) I've started to suffer apparently random mouse blockages. More specifically, after some minutes of using the system and without apparent cause, the mouse icon gets stuck at drag and drop mode. From that point on, I am unable to select nor click on anything, and I have to log out to get it working back properly.

I'd like to provide some additional relevant information, but I don't know which could be it. Please tell me which command could I run.

Incidentally, this week I posted a comment in a similar already existent bug here at launchpad, but I am not able to find it again, so I am creating a new one. Please mark this as duplicate if you find it convenient.

Thank you!
