I don't know all of the details, but it has to do with the way
processes can share ttyS* devices and not the others. If you have a
bus mouse, you'll need to check the gpm documentation thoroughly. I
think there's a way you can have X receive mouse events from gpm, but
I don't know how well, or even if, it works.
