Hi George,

Sorry for getting back so late, but I've been away from any email for
the past days.

In short - it worked using your setup. Interestingly that you have to
disable moused in order to get the mouse fully working under X. Even
more interesting that nobody else seems to have stumbled across this

Thanks much for your hints!
