Hmm.. yes, of course, no usbd. I'm so stupid. moused seems to
be run automatically by... devd? At least the mouse is available
on the text mode consoles, this is what I usually associated with
moused run by usbd. But I'm new to FreeBSD 7, I used FreeBSD 5
until it died.

Again, thanks for the clear advice.
