Photon takes over the PC mouse!

I have had this happen several times, even with the simplest programs:

void setup() {
Serial.begin(9600);
Time.zone(-5);
}

void loop() {
Serial.println(Time.timeStr());
delay(1000);
}

When the photon starts running, the PC mouse jumps in small amounts up and to the left, and I have no control.

If I disconnect the photon, I regain mouse movement control, but the mouse will no respond to clicks until I
cotl-alt-delete and the cancel.
