Description David 2012-12-19 14:30:00 UTC
On startup, sometimes it gets stuck, with lines of text saying "interrupt storm error". (The actual wording is: "interrupt storm detected on "irq17:"; throttling interrupt source".)

It appears to be caused by the USB mouse.  I know that the USB mouse works properly and there are no hardware faults of any kind.

How-To-Repeat: Use a USB mouse and sometimes (not always) the bootup will freeze and only output lines of the error message.

Attached is a picture showing this problem.

I have posted more details about this problem in the PC-BSD forums, 
under "Startup Bug Reports".  I first reported it in September when I 
was beta-testing PC-BSD:


Hope that helps.
