Yes, but see below.  What I was getting at is that, if you're using the 
right device which you are, the kernel is supposed to make whatever you 
have look to the rest of the system like a Microsoft PS2 mouse, or an 
Intellimouse, the same but for the number of buttons, AFAIK.

xorg-server 1.6.2 isn't /that/ old, either.  I'm not sure without 
looking, for the mouse driver.

OK, that's new enough it shouldn't be the problem.

/dev/input/mice is a kernel "emulated" mouse.  It takes whatever it sees 
and emulates a ps2 Microsoft Explorer mouse with it.  That's why I'm 
saying it shouldn't matter.

What mouse type are you telling xorg to use, and is it set to use the 
xorg.conf setting or hal (with server 1.6 and possibly 1.5, IDR ATM, it 
would ignore the xorg.conf setting and use hal, unless you set a 
serverflag telling it not to.  I don't have time ATM to look at the 
details, but the xorg.conf manpage has them I believe.)
