sounds like bug 116118.
Can you check your X log for failures trying to open psaux ?
If you find any, you need to update your config file.
I updated the config file to the following:
Option "Protocol" "MouseManPlusPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice" #"/dev/psaux"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
I do not use a USB mouse but this seemed to fix the problem. Is this
setting going to be changed for a future release of XConfig?
this is supposed to be automatic for all our config tools now.
