I believe its the wrong mouse Protocol thats causing the problem.
I would suggest you to :
1. Re-configure the mouse setting from /stand/sysinstall
2. Try changing the protocol to "MouseSystems" or "MouseMan"
I do not have a FBSD box here and hence cant re-collect how i setup
mine, but its something close to the above.
Good Luck !
