Mouse stopped working after system upgrade

After doing an apt-get upgrade on my Debian unstable system, my mouse no longer works. The cursor sits unmoved in the middle of the screen.

About 200 programs got updated, including KDE, so I'm not sure where the problem was introduced.

It's an ordinary PS/2 mouse, and yes, it works fine when I boot from a Knoppix CD.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot?

Check your XF86Config file. But, better to ask in #debian on freenode, Debian Unstable is ... well ... unstable. It shouldn't really be used unless you're willing to debug random breakage like that.

XF86Config hasn't changed (at least the date/time of the file hasn't changed).

The problem has now been solved by uninstalling gpm.
