I havent followed this thread before, but after upgrading a current
system from 5.99.5 (sources as of 2009-01-02) to 5.99.7 (yesterday's
sources) I do see this problem now.  I'm running native XFree86.

As a quick workaround I tried extracting the old xserver set to / and
this seems to work fine so far, at least the mouse behaves as it should

Have there been any commits to fix this problem (I didn't follow
source-changes close enough), or is it still pending?

TIA, Jukka
