weird mouse reaction and movement 5.1

So I just installed, for the first time, 5.1 on a new machine. My problem is 
this: In Sysinstall, when i select my mouse  (ps/2, MS 3 button optical) 
then enable and test the port, all of a sudden I see an early part of the 
installation wizard (the partitioning part) and i can't escape out of it. It 
is as if the mouse scrolls through a history of what i've done page by page 
until it reaches that part. I can ctrl-c out of sysinstall and it is as if 
nothing ever happened.
Is this a strange event to anyone else? Is there a way to fix it w/ flags, 
etc? It was suggested to me by a friend that I kill moused before I start up 
sysinstall but it isn't running in the first place.

Anyone know a fix?
