Thanks for pointing out that I'd forgotten about it ;-) I've updated the
entry, which now reads
o I386: There are some issues with the gpm text-mode mouse driver while
running the X Window System. The easiest solution is to remove the line
repeat_type=<something> from /etc/gpm.conf, running "/etc/init.d/gpm
restart" and then restart X. Other solutions are possible, ask the gpm
maintainer to supply more documentation.
(This is an issue I've brought up on -devel a while ago, to no avail...)
