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.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Serial mouse doesn't work

Actual Results:   

Expected Results:
