I have no idea how moving the mouse could possibly help here.

It means the number of buffers in flight (on the host side) went down to
zero, i.e. the stream is interrupted.

usb-host maintains a set of buffers (four by default) per iso endpoint
to keep the constant data flow up, i.e. pass one buffer to the guest
while the host fills the next one.  Now the host has no more buffers to
fill.  Most likely usb-host sits on a bunch of full buffers which it
hasn't passed to the guest yet.

For starter try a higher number of buffers (isobufs property).
Also make sure you enable the vnc thread (unless you have already).
