I'm running XF 3.1.1 with the aperature driver on netbsd-current, with
a Logitech PS/2 mouse. This is on an ASUS SP3G motherboard, with the
on-board PS/2 mouse connector set to interrupt 12.
When X comes up, the mouse pointer is in the middle of the screen (as
usual). As soon as I move the mouse, the pointer jumps to the upper
right corner of the screen. Other movements cause random menus to
flash on and off, as if I was pressing buttons.
The same mouse works fine under Windows and Linux/XF86 3.1.
I have re-created /dev/pms0 using an up-to-date MAKEDEV, so I hope it's
not that. The only other thing I've seen that looks relevant is that
when X starts up, it tells me that I have a PS/2 mouse running at 1200
baud; I don't recall having seen a "baud rate" reported under Linux.
