When you issue "lsmod" do you have "usbhid"?

And in xorg.conf I've got:
    Identifier     "Mouse1"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4  5"
# The mouse device.  The device is normally set to /dev/mouse,
    Option         "Device" "/dev/mouse"
#   Option "Device"      "/dev/psaux"
on this box with a Logitech wireless mouse/kbd combo.
