no working mouse during install

This is actually with the new 1.5.1 installer, but there is no option for that version on the ticket. I have not tried 1.5 as I do not have the ISOs and do not see them easily available as the legacy version is 1.4.1. This is the same hardware as mentioned in ticket #123, but this issue is minor in comparison and a separate issue so it deserves its own ticket.
During boot, psm0 is installed and finds my mouse as an IntelliMouse?. The actually mouse is a basic Logitech optical 2-button + scrollwheel. The system is connected through a good KVM which switches without dropping the PS/2 connection. I'm sure its not a hardware problem as booting Linux gets a working mouse.
When X comes up at the start of install, there is a mouse cursor in the center of the screen, but it won't move. There is no screen corruption, the chosen mode looks decent, and I can still use the keyboard to navigate the installer. So, this is an annoyance but not critical by any means. I have not yet established whether the mouse works once the system is fully installed as I have not yet completed an install, mostly due to the other previously mentioned ticket.
