impotent mouse; was /etc/X11/xorg.conf in Squeeze

X now has a driver for the i810 video.  
Still the mouse pointer can range over the 
leftmost 2/3 of the screen only and no mouse 
click produces any visible result.  No error 
EE is reported in Xorg.0.log and no warning 
WW appears relevant.

Google "site:x.org AutoAddDevices" finds this.
   Option   "AutoEnableDevices"   "false"
If this setting is made in xorg.conf, there 
is no mouse cursor.  If the setting is 
   Option   "AutoEnableDevices"   "true"
the behaviour is as described above; the cursor 
moves over the leftmost 2/3 of the screen only 
and the buttoms are inactive.

Which is more likely here---a mouse problem 
or a display driver problem?  Any more specific 
suggestions for repair?

Thanks,           ... Peter E.
