Check the mail archives related to using X with or without HAL
and DBUS (depends on the setting you are using). When your
mouse works in text mode, moused has correctly picked it up,
so the problem seems to be on X's side.

Check X configuration file /etc/X11/xorg.conf if you have any.

Check your HAL and DBUS stuff.
	a) Want to use HAL and DBUS?
		Enable them in /etc/rc.conf
	b) Do not want to use HAL and DBUS?
		Modify xorg.conf's AutoAddDevice setting.

You'll find more information about this in the mailing list
archives and the FreeBSD handbook.
