No, not a clue.
But I'd start by removing gpm if it's installed, or installing gpm if
it's not installed, and then reconfiguring X to use/not use /dev/gpmdata
accordingly, just to see if anything changes.
You might also want to provide a bit more info, such as how your
xorg.conf (or XF86Config) file is configured mouse-wise.
