Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
This may have been atomatically generated, but I'm not 100% sure since
this has been working for years.

"default desktop" meaning twm? If so, is it working *now* with twm? If
so, this looks like a gnome issue, on which I am not qualified to
I'd first try eliminating the gnome variable: in your xinitrc, comment
out whatever it is that starts gnome and replace it with <some other
window manager> instead, perhaps twm, and see if the mouse works. Then
you'll at least know if it's a problem specifically with gnome, or with
X in general.
