When moused is enabled via rc.conf it is started after local packages.

GDM (Gnome Display Manager) is started as a local package. Normally if you want to both console and X mouse support X has to be configured to use sysmouse.

The problem is that when moused is started after X (GDM) then the mouse/ keyboard is not working in X.
Enable both GDM and moused and reboot the machine.
Moused should start before the local packages (like the syscon intialization).

A "BEFORE: LOGIN" should be added to /etc/rc.d/moused.
