This seems to be the same bug as Bug 523914 - which was fixed in Fedora-13 but has since regressed with Fedora-14.
Description of problem:
Mouse stays in the center of the screen and does not move when Fedora is
started as a PV guest on CentOS-5.5 Xen. However clicking and scrolling with
wheel work fine. This happens even during installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X.Org X Server 1.9.4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start Fedora installation on RHEL-5.4 Xen as a PV guest with 1500MB memory,
4 CPUs, and 4GB disk
2. wait until graphical anaconda appears
Mouse does not move but mouse buttons work fine
Xen in CentOS-5.5 provides absolute pointer for F14 PV guests but in Fedora X log
(II) Xen Virtual Pointer: initialized for relative axes.
(WW) Xen Virtual Pointer: ignoring absolute axes.
which is probably the reason of this bug...
In Fedora 13 the file:
Contains the lines:
# Mouse does not move in PV Xen guest
# Explicitly tell evdev to not ignore the absolute axes.
Identifier "Xen Virtual Pointer axis blacklist"
MatchProduct "Xen Virtual Pointer"
Option "IgnoreAbsoluteAxes" "off"
Option "IgnoreRelativeAxes" "off"
Adding this lines to the same file (Part of xorg-x11-server-Xorg) fixes the problem.

I have attached the files as requested. I do not have a Xorg.conf file.
I don't see what all this information is needed. Essentially the problem was fixed in Fedora-13 with the file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-quirks.conf from xorg-x11-server-Xorg.
For Fedora-14 that file was dropped. If I create that file manually on Fedora-14, the problem is solved.
Somewhere in the history of the package that file was dropped, thus re-introducing the bug. The full discussion is in the previous bug report: Bug 523914
Yes, you are right ... I have misread your original description. We had to drop the file somewhere. Peter?

Yes, you are right ... we have dropped Xen-related stuff somewhere.
