Yeah check that gpm is not giving your mouse an extra headache.

Either gpm should have all repeating turned off:
	* gpm will be quiescent and "not see" the mouse while you are in X
	* gpm will see the mouse and use it while you are tasked away from X

or you should check that the repeating is being honored by X:
	* the repeat format should be what X is expecting
	* X should use /dev/gpmdata (a socket which is fed by gpm)

If gpm is not running, then I'd check IRQs.
