when i boot up my computer the devd starts the moused for the usb moused device he founds.
when moused gets started that way, xorg doesnt find the mouse, when i kill the running moused from devd, and start moused via /etc/rc.d/moused it works.
the ONLY differece between starting moused from devd and starting moused directly is, that via devd the moused writes the PID into another file e.g.:
when starting with /etc/rc.d/moused the PID is stored in a file named:
in the later case, xorg finds the mouse... by the way: i dont use a configfile for xorg.
i dont know if the bug is on xorg or on BSD :(
