Bug#394058: xserver-xorg-core: X mouse manpage is in section 4x

Package: xserver-xorg-core
Version: 1:1.0.2-9
Followup-For: Bug #394058

I was going to report the same issue.

"mouse(4)" is a man page describing the pinout and protocol used by
serial mice.  The page relevent to the X mouse driver is "mouse(4x)"
which you can view using "man 4x mouse".

The xorg.conf manpage SEE-ALSO section should be updated to refer
to "mouse(4x)" rather than "mouse(4)".  The same may be true of the
other driver pages referred to there.

Appologies if this has been fixed recently.  I'm not keen to upgrade
my X server just to see if a man page typo has been fixed!
