Comment (by Luposian):

 Ok, I finally got around to testing out a different USB mouse.  It's a USB
 Kensington ball mouse.  When I plugged it in, after unplugging the
 Logitech Trackman Marble, I was shocked to see I went from using 25% CPU
 (Pulse shows 20 "bars", so 5 bars (which were lit green) = 25%), to less
 than 1% (Pulse showed nothing, but the little CPU indicator at the leaf
 menu/task bar was blipping a single little purple line).

 But that wasn't what shocked me most.  No, the BIG surprise came when I
 unplugged the Kensington and plugged the Logitech back in... it was
 showing the SAME amount of CPU usage... which was next to nothing!

 So, as I understand it, this is simply a USB initialization thing... if
 you unplug the USB mouse/trackball and plug it back in, the CPU usage
 issue goes away!  I will reboot and test this theory (with just the
 Logitech).
