hrrrm what is your moused setup like?
my laptop's touchpad has two buttons, so I pass -3 to moused and that
fouls up the third button (either clicking or scrolling I forget
which) when I plugin a usb mouse. I changed the line in /etc/devd.conf
that handles starting moused for usb mice so -3 isn't used and it
works fine.

The biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has occurred.
