I'm using one with both GPM and X with no problems.  I don't even have
a ~/.xinitrc, but in /etc/X11/XF86Config I have the following:

Section "Pointer"
    Protocol    "IMPS/2"
    Device      "/dev/mouse"
    ZAxisMapping  4 5
    Buttons 7

and in /etc/gpm.conf I have:

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

/dev/mouse is a symlink to /dev/psaux.

I have observed that the wheel doesn't work with all X apps.  It does
work with browsers (netscape, mozilla, galeon), however.
