I've tested out the excellent tips given to me by other members, but
whatever protocol I've tried the same thing seems to happen. The strange
thing is that it works fine the first five seconds, then starts flying all

| Hey guys.
|| I've just set up a lovely new Slackware 8 box, and I have to say it's
| performs beautifully. Thing is, my mouse freaks out in X.
| I've tried killing gpm and setting XF86Config to use ps2, and I've tried
| keep it running and set XF86 to use gpmdata. Both gives the same
| though. The mouse works fine in the console, but flies around like a
| kamikaze pilot on drugs when I fire up X.
|| Anyone heard about this before?
