Do you have a /dev/ums0 (my usb mouse device)?  Also, even when my mouse
didn't really work, disconnecting/reconnecting the receiver from the usb
port (moving to another or leaving in the same port) would generate log
messages that the mouse was being recognized correctly.

I was assuming that /dev/sysmouse would only exist if the system thought
there was a mouse somewhere, but I'm not sure about that.
