Seems like a stupid low level corruption,
something like 1 byte in some mouse driver software that's gone kaput.

If you try to boot from an OS CD, and don't have the same problem (so you're sure it's not hardware mouse or trackpad related)
Then it looks like a full re-install of the OS is all you can do to get out of this.

Have you tried unplugging the mouse and plugging it back in to the same or a different USB port, or tried another mouse?

Tried another mouse?

The Apple mouse that shipped with the some G4s is prone to develop a short in its cable, where it connects to body of the mouse.

This makes them prone to "freezing" and other erratic behavior.
