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.
