I hope I chose the right component to file bug against.

Description of problem:
I have a MS serial mouse which works fine during phoebe installation. But after
the installation mouse doesn't work. Every time I run kudzu it  either detects
it as Generic Mouse or Microsoft Mouse 2.1 and after that mouse works. But if
restart gpm or reboot the machine, mouse doesn't work again.
