are you sure that you are using the latest Xorg version from pkgsrc? There recently was a fix concerning moused.

:I'm a little bit lost with all that: I can't get moused to work correctly with :my mouse, and I have to modify ums(4) to use the right mode by default.

moused works perfectly with my 3 button/wheel usb mouse here. what does

moused -d -f -p /dev/ums0


    See if that works and if it does and there is no equivalent moused
    option, we can add a new option to moused to do the ioctl.  Or, rather,
    if you make the modification to moused and submit the patch we'll commit
    it.  I'd prefer that over changing the device driver's default mode.

definitely. but i think moused should already support the best mode possible.
