    I don't know if your still having the problem or not but here is my advice...
    It sounds like you used the wrong mouse type. For instance I use a Logitech Optical Scroll mouse. I have no problems with the X server, because I chose to use a generice scroll mouse driver on PS/2 port. If you choose the wrong port as well that will prevent your mouse from working correctly. You need to verify your config.

    When it came down to it I dropped everything and ran.
