I'm still using 1.3.3, so your mileage may vary.

As someone else guessed, it's because you haven't defined
any higher resolution mode; I use:

ModeLine "800x600"     40.09     800  840  864 991   600  601 603  625 +hsync +vsync

the following works for me:

Section "Pointer"
    Protocol    "MouseSystems"
    Device      "/dev/mouse"

I remember having the problem you describe when setting it to
use PS/2 protocol.
