Question (STRANGE) Mouse get's crazy when holding a key and moving mouse(Update to 2.6.10)

Hi all geeks out there

When i upgraded to Linux 2.6.10, i lost my /dev/mouse and got the /dev/input/mice, and when
i use the /dev/input/mice and holding a key down the mouse get's crazy and fly arond the screen and press all the buttons. Also, i lost my scoll and side buttons (MS Intelli 3.0).

Here is my mouse config:

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier	"Mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"   "imps/2"
    Option "Device"     "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"


I get no output from xev when using the scroll and sidebuttons.
