I had these problems too, but now the combination of X *and* gpm works
flawlessly with a logitech 3-button mouse with the following gpm.conf:

   append="-l \"a-zA-Z0-9_.:~/\300-\326\330-\366\370-\377\""

and the following lines in XF86Config:

      Section "Pointer"
        Protocol        "PS/2"
        Device  "/dev/mouse"

/dev/mouse points to /dev/psaux!

Be sure that there is no 'emulate 3 buttons' option in neither

Good luck,
