Actually, it's good for a few reasons:

1) Crap, I forgot to plug the mouse back in
2) Crap, the Mouse/PS2 port/etc is fried.
3) Depending on the selection you make, it will reconfigure XFree86
and gpm with the new settings.

If you don't like it, you have a couple options -- either select
'ignore configuration change' or run 'chkconfig kudzu off'

The benefits far outweigh the 5 second annoyance when you forgot to
plug something in (and you should be notified anyway)

Really? I put in my TV card and kudzu automatically configured it for me.
Not only that, it did it in /etc/modules.conf, without obliterating my own
personal changes there (unlike debian).
