I can confirm that this same spinning happens in 0.19 when my Logitech G27 wheel is connected.

OS: Windows 10 (10.0)
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.19.17433 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: master
Hash: 125380ddd9a1fdeb45ffc736040dad1f6343daa4
Python version: 3.6.8
Qt version: 5.12.1
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.3.0
Locale: Finnish/Finland (fi_FI)
In the Tools menu -> customize -> spaceball tabs what do you see? I'm wondering if FreeCAD is seeing these devices as spaceballs. If so, perhaps it can be disabled there.

Absolutely spot on, I fished out my old Logitech Formula Force EX to test and sure enough I could reproduce the fault. I just disabled Translations and Rotations in Spaceball Motion tab and I can leave it plugged it.

But....if you have Record Log Messages ticked in Edit > Preferences > General > Output Window tab then you get a continuous output of:

Code: Select all

X-Axis: 368

Y-Axis: 128
using:

OS: Windows 7 SP 1 (6.1)
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.19.17433 (Git)
Build type: Release

...so I disconnected it again!!
