OK. I'm just a basic user. Event I use FreeBSD since 3.x 

I'm sysadmin so I use lot of FreeBSD for the server side. On my laptop I
use...vim/X11/Firefox/ion3 and that is almost everything I knwon.

I remenber when hal is release I lost lot of time to configure X11 to use
my keyboard map (us_intl) and hate hal for that ;-)

I think the problem is indeed comme from Xorg. 

Before I plug (Notice my touchpad working)

I plug the mouse
