Gentoo mouse problems


I just recently installed gentoo and most things are working great. But I do have this one annoying problem. Sometimes when i am working my mouse will "jump" to one side of the screen and open up a menu (im using flux so i guess it is right-clicking). Also, sometimes i wont be able to control a window with my mouse i.e. i can actually right click inside the window and ill get the flux menu. This is only a problem while im in gentoo, not Red Hat, and if I vnc to the computer it doesn't do this.

My mouse is a Logitech dual optical mouse.

This is my /etc/X11/XF86Config for my mouse:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

Have a look for gpm, if it's running stop it and see if that cures the problem.

Are you using a ps/2-usb converter?

Try it as a straight ps/2 device.

If you do you'll have to change the device from /dev/psaux to /dev/input/mice.

Its been a while since i have worked on this, but now I really want to fix it. I have tried changing the mouse to a standard ps/2 mouse (not converted) and i am having similar problems. I have a feeling it has something to do with X, but im not really sure what.
