Exclamation Mouse errors on XFree86. Not asked on this forum.

Hi to all. First of all sorry for my english. I'm trying to solve this issue.

I have an AMDK6 with Debian Woody installed and KDE as desktop. 128 Mb RAM
The problem:

I have a serial mouse on /dev/ttyS1 configured as "Microsoft". It works on XFree86 without problem. When i use some KDE programs the mouse works fine but when i start programs like: Netscape 7.1, Mozilla, The OpenOffice installation (after, the program works fine) the mouse jumps erraticaly and it can't be controlled.
I must logout from KDE and start it again but when i execute this software it happen again.

Things that i made:
I installed the gpm and configure it correctly. I change the value of /dev/ttyS1 on XF86Config-4 to /dev/gpmdata. It works fine but when i start the mencioned software, the mouse stops the movement. Now i can't move the mouse.

One thing more:
When i use the /dev/ttyS1 config, when i start netscape (or another one) the keyboard tries to hang. I can't explain better, the keyboard (old one) work slower.

Please, i'm amazed with this error. Someone know something about that or got any ideas?
