I could give a ratt's ass about the mouse (or a mouse's ass, as the case may
be).  Thanks for the help.  I gotta look into the keyboard flags, something
I've always just ignored.

Geez.  Why would they add this by default ?

0x01    Force detection of keyboard, else we always assume a keyboard

What does it hurt to assume a keyboard ?  At least for generic, then let the
people with special setups change it.

Thanks again.
