[time-nuts] Thunderbolt and Windows XP

Windows XP gets mighty confused by a TB connected to a serial port and
installs the MS Ball-Point Mouse driver and tries to interpret the packet
from the TB as mouse commands - just go into device manager and disable the
MS Ball-Point Mouse!

The TB also confuses the heck out of Acronis bootable utilities - they also
see it as a rodent.   I now unplug the serial cable to the TB when I need to
use these.

Thought this information might help someone.
