After trying all the proposed solutions, it seems that the easiest 
workaround (and the one with the least side effects) is to add the 
following line to the "ServerLayout" section of your xorg.conf:

Option  "autoAddDevices"  "false"

You can then leave both HAL and moused running. Once the problem has 
been properly fixed in a future port revision, all you need to do is 
remove that line.
