has anybody got this working with gpm, as well?

at the moment, i'm doing something like

    gpm -M -m /dev/input/mice -t imps2 -m /dev/psaux -t ps2 -R ms3

and then pointing my XF86Config file to /dev/gpmdata.  works well (even
supports the scroller via Z-Axis 4/5).

unfortunately, there seems to be a race condition or something in gpm.
the very first time you run it (after startup), the multiple mice work --
but only in the console.  switch to X, and your cursor stays there, dead,
no matter what you do.  gpm -k and rerun gpm, and it works perfectly.
very strange.
