Bug#249980: xserver-xfree86: [mouse] with a ps/2 socket but a serial mouse plugged in, autodetect fails

Package: xserver-xfree86
Version: 4.2.1-16
Severity: normal

branden, hi, i am not sure if this is to do with xserver itself but
i just downloaded morphix onto a CD in the hope that the same issues
i am having would be fixed, there, and they are not.

the issue is that auto-detection of the mouse is erroneous (and i will
alert the kernel people too).

i have a serial mouse plugged into /dev/ttyS0 on a machine that has a
ps/2 socket.

on bootup, the serial mouse is not found.

whose bug is this one? :)
