In your  XF86Config-4, there are two  sections for the  mouse. The one
that refers  to /dev/psaux  is your touchpad.  The protocol  should be
PS/2. The  other one refers to  /dev/input/mice. This is  all but your
touchpad, including  your USB  mouse. You should  set the  protocol to
ImPS/2.  I  don't  know  if  it  is  possible  with  `dpkg-reconfigure
xserver-xfree86', so you may have to modify this file by hand. In this
case, the file will not be updated any more by dpkg.
