When Grub2 is loading the kernel if I press the spacebar a few times, I will be unable to use the mouse. Modprobing it will not work I have to reboot and not press the spacebar. Not present in Grub Legacy. I have not tested to see if other keys affect this. Present in distros Arch Linux and Ubuntu Natty Narwhal.
