   I have a different problem on T61p tho possibly related - I use 2
different BT mice.

  Since installing f13, there are times when the mouse gets disconnected
from the laptop (both mice, 1 brand new). I have to power cycle the
mouse to get f13 to see it again then all is well. Happens in mid use
... suddenly light goes from blue to green on mouse - nothing in log file.

   However while mouse is working _ get a ton of messages like this:

  kernel: btusb_bulk_complete: hci0 urb ffff88010f94ed80 failed to
resubmit (1)

   Happens randomly - never saw this problem with f12 ... I would have
suspected the mouse but since 1 is brand new it seems less likely.
