It would seem a shame to have to create an xorg.conf just for the mouse if
the system already works perfectly well (for X) without one.  I have had to
fiddle with hal policy to get all my touchpads working as they should in F11
(mainly for kdm reasons) but I would not mind betting there is a hal policy
file that can be created to cope with the BT mouse case?  Maybe one of the
hal experts on the list could comment/help?
