I made bad experiences (on -Preview, though) with accessing the device
directly from X (skippy mouse movements), but it worked well to start
the moused and use "Sysmouse" driver in X and "/dev/sysmouse" as the

For whatever reason, all tested DragonFly versions (RELEASE, Preview,
HEAD) do strange things when it comes to my mouse's wheel. It's
recognized, but moused doesn't work as expected with

# moused -t auto -p /dev/psm0 -z 4

it only reports one direction of wheel movement. OTOH, wenn I specify
it as

# moused -t auto -p /dev/psm0 -z 5

everything is fine. Anybody else had this issue?
