	Same here.

	This problem happened to me at least a couple time when 
	I installed X with different mice.  I've got several boxes
	running thru a KVM switch and using the PS/2 protocol and

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "Auto"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"

	I'm using ctwm, not KDE, but this ought have nothing to
	do with the mouse-at-top-of-screen. IIRC, the problem
	happened as soon as xlogin screen appeared and after I
	touched the mouse.
