i don't know if it's the same exact problem, as it happened to me on sid, and
i can't remember who first posted what worked as the solution in my case, but
you might want to give it a try. it came up again here on the list earlier.
in /etc/gpm.conf, do
and in /etc/X11/XF86Config, do
Option "Device" "/dev/gpmdata"
i'd be interested in your analysis of why this should work. all i know is
that it does.
