I had this problem with my printer i unplugged it during instillation and it linux did not know where on earth it was, it took me 2 hours to configure it to my usb port, it took me so long because what i knew about linux at that time could fill a walnut shell
Allocated? Should be more like assigned to. And how is mentioning your printer problem useful to a mouse problem?
What does your XF86Config-4 file state for your mouse settings? Do you possibly have another mouse to test or use to reconfigure with? Have you tried to unplug and replug back in, rebooted and then reinserted to see if it autodetects the mouse?
