Victor T. had similar problems. His mouse didn't work at all in X. He did
a re-install and everything came up ok. This may be a problem with
dependencies that leaves something crucial unconfigured by dselect. Try a
second pass with dselect and see if that fixes things.
If you get any hints from this process about what, exactly, went wrong, we
would all appreciate hearing about what you discover.
