That happens in X. I don't recall any problems in console mode, but may
not have tested it.

AFAIK, yes. Try it: with a USB mouse, set moused_enable="NO", reboot,
switch from console to X and back with alt-f9 and then ctrl-alt-f1.
Note the delay, particularly switching from console to X. Now enable
moused, reboot, and try it again.
I don't know what causes the difference. Certainly it's something that
could be tolerated if you don't switch between console and X much.
