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
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.
