I think you have an error in your config file.

Looks fine to me.  I presume by this you have a ps2 wheelmouse.

That is incorrect.  It should be /dev/gpmdata.  But you knew that.

Correct if the gpm.conf was correct.

Yes.  Stop X first.  Get it working on the console before worrying
about it working in X.  By leaving X reading from /dev/psaux you now
have two different processes reading the same device.

Note that depending upon the presence of 'mousedev' as a kernel module
mouse events will be automatically repeated to /dev/input/mice which
should also be in your X config file.  See the kernel docs on mousedev
for more information.
