Hm.  How old is the kernel that does work?

Could it possibly be a timing glitch in the mouse initialization??
Somehow that seems more likely than that the cursor-initialization
changes are stopping the serial port from sending data.

And it's the same serial chip as the keyboard, so changes in the
attach code dont seem a likely culprit.
