Different hardware, possibly.

For completeness, this machine has dbus running, hal is not installed, 
moused_enable="YES" is in /etc/rc.conf, and it requires a restart. 
Probably the touchpad on this system is USB internally, and a normal 
moused can't be started after devd starts a "nondefault" moused.

xorg.conf has no InputDevice entries at all.  The scroll wheel and 
middle click buttons work.
