Probably the first thing to check is that what you have in /etc/X11/xorg.conf to identify the mouse, such as:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
   Option       "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
EndSection

...actually exists in /dev

sometimes it is /dev/psaux, or dev/input/mouse0

Every once in a while whatever I have put in xorg.conf, seems to not exist in /dev.

Worth a check, anyway.
