Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run redhat-config-mouse on Red Hat null.
I've duplicated the problem by running redhat-config-mouse within X, or even in
text mode with X already running. Apparently it only runs properly when X
hasn't grabbed the mouse (even though it does break the mouse set up while it
attempts to detect it).
The only way I've been able to run it successfully was to init 3 the box, log
into X on another box, ssh into the one I want to change the mouse config, and
then run redhat-config-mouse with X display tunneling through the SSH
connection. Only then does it probe a PS/2 mouse correctly. Mine is a Genius
Should be fixed with rhpl-0.47-1 and redhat-config-mouse-1.0.0-1.
QA, please verify.
Fix confirmed with rhpl-0.47-1 and redhat-config-mouse-1.0.0-1.
