[Condor-users] condor "Failed to obtain keyboard or mouse idle information."

	I'm deploying condor 6.7.11, and one of the machines in my pool fills
up its StartLog with these messages:

9/23 07:31:47 Failed to obtain keyboard or mouse idle information.
9/23 07:31:47 Assuming the keyboard and mouse to be infinitely idle.

	These are repeated every five minutes, until the log rolls over.  The
load-average monitoring appears to be working, so jobs still vacate when
I start using the machine, but I'd like to fix this.
	The machine is a Dell Optiplex GX280, which has USB keyboard and mouse,
and is running Mandrake 10.1.  The actual mouse device
is /dev/usbmouse->/dev/input/mice, not /dev/mouse.  So, I tried putting
'CONSOLE_DEVICES = usbmouse, console' in the local config file, but got
the same error messages after reconfig'ing.
	Any suggestions?  Thanks
