Me too have had some truobles with a PS2 mouse (with add-on card):
these are my /etc/gpm.conf and the mouse section of /etc/X11/XF86Config file:
both of them work fine *without* using the wheel (and imwheel program :(( )



/etc/XF86Config (mouse part):

Section "Pointer"
    Protocol  "MouseSystems"
    Device      "/dev/mouse"

Note:/dev/mouse is a symlink to /dev/psaux
Note 2: on another potato machine, with the same logitech mouse (NOT in a
        separate card), those files DON'T work. Sigh!!!
