                      RE>>PS/2 mouse HOW ??                        10/9/95

Yup, I failed to mention this.  XF86Config pointer device should be /dev/psm0
with protocol PS/2.  If you get past the standard configuration stuff and
still have problems (as several of us have) you might try warping into and out
of xterms/consoles via twm define function key.  Some find this alone frees up
the mouse.  I find that it allows me to exit, then when I startx again I'm OK.
 Another fellow finds if he starts up with a "real" PS/2 mouse, then after
that plugs in his Logitech mouse (what I've got) then things work.  See the
bug and hacker archives.
