vim cannot regain control of mouse

Bug Description

In Precise, vim is unable to reassert control of the mouse once it has started. The mouse works normally upon starting vim. If it loses control of the mouse in the pseudo-terminal, however, perhaps due to being suspended with ^Z, or turning the mouse off with ':set mouse=', then vim becomes unable to regain control of the mouse when it should, such as being resumed or ':set mouse=a'.

The expected behavior is that suspending should have no effect on the mouse within vim, and clearing and resetting the mouse variable should also have no effect on the mouse.

I'm seeing something similar, but without first suspending. When I start vim, and try to set mouse=a, it just doesn't seem to work.
