I have a vostro 1000 laptop running Intrepid and Gnome. Occasionally my ability to right-click or open any menus other than the gnome main menu disappear. Obviously this is an issue with the context menus, not so much the mouse malfunctioning as the keypress of the right button registers, it just doesn't pull anything up. The only way to get it back is to reboot. This has happened with multiple installations. I don't know what info is needed to troubleshoot this, so please let me know what I need to provide to get an accurate answer on this. One thing I can say is that while this happens I cannot run Hardware Testing as it fails and says it is unable to capture my keyboard.
