    moused isn't required to use the mouse.  Most people setup X
    to talk to the PS/2 mouse directly.

I am not in X and the mouse is working so moused must be enabled. :)

I actually rarely use X.  Everyone I know who has used X to talk to the
mouse directly instead of using sysmouse has had a horrible time with
the mouse driver missing interrupts.

It used to happen to me all the time until someone pointed that out to
me in a KDE-FreeBSD IRC channel.  After I switched to sysmouse I
never looked back :)

I don't think the problem was ever fixed in FreeBSD either... not that
I would know how to help on that one.
