The application opens /dev/wsmux2, not /dev/wsmouse0.  X might open
/dev/wsmouse0, but if that's what's behind this I don't understand why
there's a difference between a run on the full-fledged development
system and the production system.  (Also, lsof on the X server on the
dev system indicates no fds on wsmouse; lsof | fgrep ws shows only
wsmux0.  But that's a working version and hence inconclusive.)

Well, it _said_ it attached to wsmux2.  The boot-time autoconf says

[   5.9427172] wsmouse0 at ums0 mux 2

same as the later (after replugging) autoconf lines.

But thanks for the suggestion; that certainly could be a worthwhile
area to investigate.
