[PD] hid mouse repeats wheel and relative position events infinitely?

Hello out there...

I'm using 'hid' from 0.40.3-extended in ubuntu hardy. After opening the 
mouse device everything seems to be fine at first (all number boxes in 
the example patch change on clicks and wheel-moves as expected), but 
when I'm trying to use mouse-wheel or relative position I was little 
surprised that those events are beeing repeated until I send a 0 or 
close Mesage to the hid object. Like this i can get single events out of 
it, but i don't think that's a good idea, closing and reopening the 
device all the time.

I tried a new Logitech RX1000 and an older optical Logitech USB Mouse 
without differences. I'll try a PS/2 Mouse later...

example-patch attached.
