Synopsis (One line summary of the problem): GhostBSD 3.0 amd64, Mouse not working after starting xorg

Category: System Bug
Which GhostBSD Release You Are Using: 3.0 RC3

Environment (output of "uname -a" on the problem machine): FreeBSD UNIX-RX15 9.1-RC3 FreeBSD 9.1-RC3 #0: Wed Nov 7 08:37:48 AST 2012 root@ericbsd.ghostbsd.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GH

Full Description of the problem: Mouse not working when starting xorg, using a usb wireless keyboard mouse combo.

How to reproduce the problem:
Install GhostBSD 3.0 RC3 and use a usb wireless keyboard mouse combo, the mouse will not work, but the keyboard will.

Fix to the problem if known:
Do not use moused in rc.conf for USB mice.

Add the following to the ServerLayout section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Option "AllowEmptyInput" "off"

This forces X to use the keyboard and mouse sections of xorg.conf.
The mouse should now work.
