is it USB or PS2 mouse?

this looks like gnome issue, sunce mouse is visible while rhgb 
running, but mouse can be configured directly in file 
/etc/X11/xorg.conf; can you send us context of this file?

also, you can disable rhgb; check the file /boot/grub/menu.lst 
and (after backup to /root/important/ or other safe from users 
directory) and delete every "rhgb" you find
