I have the identical laptop and experience this occasionally
with no apparent immediate cause. The behaviour is the same 
under Linux as well. The symptoms persist when the X server is
restarted (i.e. C-M-Bkspc) but normal operation is restored
upon a reboot. 

I suspect buggy hardware but haven't looked into it any closer
since it happens relatively rarely. 

Are you using the wsmouse driver or speaking directly to the ps/2
