Yep, you're right. I commented out the lines regarding the mouse in the
rc.conf and the mouse works fine in gnome.
BTW, I don't have anything in /etc/rc.conf regarding a mouse. If you
enable moused, you're overriding the default behavior of the usb mouse
and forcing it to behave according to your dictates.
The mouse should work in Xorg without anything entered in /etc/rc.conf.
The first thing you should do is go to the console, unplug and then
replug the mouse. You should see the mouse being disconnected and
then re-detected by messages written to console. If you don't see
that, your usb mouse isn't being detected properly.

my opinions are my own and not
those of my employer.
