I have also a PS/2 touchpad and an external USB mouse. Formerly I also
used the -M option for gpm, but the third mouse button/wheel was not
recognized (i.e. inactive) or the third button emulation was not working
on the touchpad (only 2 buttons there) depending of the options I choose.
I worked around that by configuring gpm to use the touchpad only (I can
cope without the mouse on the console...) and the "pointer" section of X
to /dev/gpmdata. I then added the USB mouse (/dev/input/mice) to the
"XInput" section, "Mouse" sub-section.
It works great!
