:Now comes the funny part:  switch to a console vty.  still works!  also 
:another instance will work correctly...  until I quit all running 
:showmouse/hexdump and rerun them...  all in/out going totally wrong 
:again...  until (no, you don't believe this) I switch to X.  As soon as 
:I switch to X again everything works again.  So X is doing *something* 
:which makes sysmouse output correct data.
:I guess I'm not far from the problem, probably some initialization which 
:isn't documented or such (but I know it worked before!)

    I would not have expected it to work at all with multiple readers open
    on the device.
