On a system without kernel modules moused fails to start with the
following message :

	moused: unable to load USB mouse driver: No such file or directory

The hardware is a Via C3 mini-itx PC with an USB mouse.

The system was compiled today; it worked on the 13th.

Even though the ums driver is compiled in the kernel and /dev/ums0 is
present it seems moused tries to load a kernel module and fails if
this is not possible.

I have verified the problem to be caused by revision 1.61 of
