Xconfigurator broken if Kudzu/Mouseconfig change mouse

Description of problem:
I attached a serial mouse to my laptop (which uses a ps/2 mouse
internally). When it booted, Kudzu detected the serial mouse and set it
up for me.
I found an additional problem not related to this one that prompted me to
run Xconfigurator. It complained about a problem with
the /etc/sysconfig/mouse file and ran Mouseconfig. After Mouseconfig ran,
it still wouldn't work.
The error message was that line 5 was unexpected. Apparently it didn't
like the line that specifies the device that the mouse is attached to.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have Kudzu or Mouseconfig change from PS/2 to Serial mouse
2. Run Xconfigurator
Actual Results: Line 5 of /etc/sysconfig/mouse was "unexpected" according
to Xconfigurator, which caused it to re-run mouseconfig, which didn't help.
Expected Results: It should have worked, of course... :)
My guess is simply that Mouseconfig and Kudzu were updated to add a line
that Anaconda doesn't generate and Xconfigurator wasn't updated to handle
that additional line.
