Seems to be working fine here: ThinkPad X60, RELENG_7 as of late night
(EST) February 15th, xorg-server-1.4_4,1, xf86-input-mouse-1.2.3. 

RabbitsDen# grep mouse xorg.conf
	Driver      "mouse"
	Option	    "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"

I am using built-in stick and Logitech VX Revolution mouse.

If you'd like to compare anything else, please, let me know.
