This is the net result of a few broken behaviours in X, though. X should
not mandate the use of a mouse.

With a 2.6 kernel, you should set your mouse device to /dev/input/mice.
This device should exist even if there are no mice in the system (just
not give out any events, obviously). I think right now it doesn't.
