I am. And I do indeed have this option set. vt was my reason for
installing STABLE rather than RELEASE.

But actually, this may be simpler than that. It *finally* occurred to
me to look in the rc.conf man page for moused options. I now have:


But I don't currently have a mouse plugged into the system to test it
with. It looks like the moused_type option requires the mouse to be
plugged in, whereas supposedly the moused_nondefault_enable option
allows moused to recognize the mouse when it is plugged in.
