when you must use the parameter -z of moused?

I had an Apple Mighty Mouse and I would like to use the track ball (the wheel
part)

The driver UMS detects the Z Axis and the Wheel [XYZW]

ums0: <Mitsumi Electric Apple Optical USB Mouse, class 0/0, rev 1.10/1.08, addr 4> on usbus1
ums0: 4 buttons and [XYZW] coordinates ID=0

When I run this command

/usr/sbin/moused -f -d -p /dev/ums0 -t auto -I /var/run/moused.ums0.pid

moused reports movements in XYZ (dx dy dz) but not W (dz?), in Xorg the scroll
(vertical) works OK (xev reports events for button 4 and 5), but no horizontal
(xev doesn't report anything)

When I run this command

/usr/sbin/moused -f -d -z 4 5 6 7 -p /dev/ums0 -t auto -I /var/run/moused.ums0.pid

moused reports movements in XY (dx dy) but not ZW (dz), for Z now reports
buttons 4 and 5 pressed, in Xorg the scroll (vertical) does not work (xev
reports events for button 8 and 9), and no horizontal (xev doesn't report
anything)

Here is the mouse part of my x11-input.fdi file

    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.mouse">
      <merge key="input.x11_options.Protocol" type="string">SysMouse</merge>
      <merge key="input.x11_options.Emulate3Buttons" type="string">Off</merge>
      <merge key="input.x11_options.Buttons" type="string">8</merge>
    </match>

But in Xorg.0.log I see conflicts with the configuration, the lines that begin
with "(**) Apple Optical USB Mouse:", where they come from?

(EE) config/hal: couldn't initialise context: unknown error (null)
(II) config/hal: Adding input device Apple Optical USB Mouse
