I don't know ~anything about xorg, but it looks like something changed
in the server code indeed.  1.10 in -6 and -7 is happy with just the
vboxmouse driver section, but if you check the Xorg log you'll see
that it loads "mouse" driver automatically.  For 1.18 in -8 it seems
you have to configure it explicitly.

Looking at src/VBox/Additions/x11/Installer/x11config.sh I ended up

Section "ServerLayout"
# ...
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Mouse1" "SendCoreEvents"
# ...

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse1"
        Driver      "vboxmouse"

Insert your favorite "I don't know what I'm doing" meme here.

You also need to paxctl +m VBoxService it seems to let it create rwx
