I cannot reproduce your problem. I am running Wheezy with the exact same
stock Debian kernel image: linux-image-2.6.32-5-686, version 2.6.32-31,
and my mouse pointer works fine. I am using GNOME and the nv driver.
I also have gpm installed for using the mouse in a text console. My mouse
is a standard 2-button PS/2 mouse connected to a standard PS/2 mouse port
on the back of the machine (Intel 8042 keyboard/mouse controller chip).
What kind of mouse are you using?
