I think I nailed it down to USB issue. My pendrives suck under Mojave, so I started digging and found IORegistryExplorer. It would mark green devices attached to the system for about 5 seconds, and mark red the ones you disconnect.
If you re-use the same USB port multiple times, it would list the devices.

Here's a DataTraveler pendrive I disconnected, and another DT Elite I connected. It's a front panel USB 3.0 port (SSP1).
IORegistryExplorer will list all devices that are connected to this port and removed.
Look at my mouse tho:

Seems that it disconnects and reconnects... Now it's black, cos I did not catch it green at the last such freeze. But I suspect, in the background due to some USB drivers not being correctly added it keeps disconnecting and reconnecting - hence the freeze.
Will do some more tests and see how to fix USB drivers.
Totally USB thing, managed to catch it this time, and there are loads of disconnects above it... :S

Thanks for testing, it's very interesting. Will be waiting for updates though it's ok with my mouse now.
