System lockup when moving mouse after launching a program

Bug Description

I have a new install of Feisty, all updates installed. If I click on an icon in my launcher area and then immediately move my mouse, the entire system locks up hard. The mouse stops moving and the animated busy cusrsor stops animating. The system doesn't respond to left or right clicks and no key presses. numlock and capslock won't even toggle. The only way out is to hit reset on the tower.

I have most frequently seen with firefox, but other programs do it too. I installed Thunderbird and put it on the launcher and it does to too.

It seems if I click the laucnher and am very careful not to move my mouse, the program starts and seems to run OK. It only seems to be a problem if I move the mouse immediately when starting a program.

1. Please include the output of the command "uname -a" in your next response. It should be one, long line of text which includes the exact kernel version you're running, as well as the CPU architecture.
2. Please run the command "dmesg > dmesg.log" and attach the resulting file "dmesg.log" to this bug report.
3. Please run the command "lspci -vvnn > lspci-vvnn.log" and attach the resulting file "lspci-vvnn.log" to this bug report.
