Does the mouse "jump all over the show" when you are not using X? Have
you tried using moused with just a regular terminal as is suggested by the
above rc.conf variables, that is without a connection to the X server and
without the server running?
What's your "%uname -a" too?
I'll try running a PS/2 mouse with my system (1.1-CURRENT) and let you
know if I have the same problem.
Good luck, Zera Holladay
