I have only one problem with these fixes, switching between a VT, and X
causes problems (gpm running, X started with xinit). It dosn't with the
driver as distributed in the kernel so ...

What I have seen is, if I start X (xinit) with gpm running, X complains
that it can't open /dev/psaux, and fails to start, then I get "psaux:
controller timeout", and moving the mouse gives some mouse error message
from gpm, kbd & mouse locked tight. I also started X first (before gpm),
and that worked fine until I quitted X at which time I got "psaux:
controller timeout", again kbd & mouse locked tight.

Versions are:
gpm-Linux 1.06, November 1995

XFree86 Version 3.1.2E / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6100)
Release Date: May 13 1996
