After some work on IRC I got to the following:
I have X compiled WITH hald.
dbus and hald are enabled and running
All relevant drivers are installed.
/dev/sysmouse exists.

The mouse works for a tiny bit and then fails.

Its a laptop mouse - but it might be connected to the USB bus; 8.0 has
better support for USB so I'm running freebsd-update currently to
determine if it fixes the problem.
