Don't think you're the first one to do that :)
The fact I had never even enabled moused is exactly the reason I had
such a hard time finding it. It just never occurred to me that usbd
was starting moused up behind my back. Eventually, I realized this
was happening, killed moused and it worked. Problem is the next time
I plugged back in, usbd would start moused again. I had to comment
the mouse section out of /etc/usbd.conf and restart usbd
(/etc/rc.d/usbd restart) to get it to leave the pointers alone.
What I kept forgetting is that usbd would be restarting moused. You
have to reconfigure usbd and restart it. Then make sure moused isn't
running. Then your mouse should be there at /def/ums0. Your
xorg.conf mouse section will have to be configured to that device.
