It's too late at night.  It turns out that the Intellimouse PS/2's
protocol is only different when it's initialized by a program that
tells it to be.  Like gpm with the patches that _I_ wrote for it.
Unplugging the mouse and plugging it back in resets it to standard
PS/2 just fine.

I can be such an idiot sometimes.

Graphical patches to CVS tomorrow I hope.
