I have these verions installed.  But when I start
xdm there is no mouse movement.  The keyboard is
working.  When I compare an old Xorg.0.log to the
recently generated log, it shows that hal detected
the keyboard, but no mouse.

I had been using Xorg 7.3 with no xorg.conf file.

/etc/rc.conf has moused_enable set.
