Thanks, Alessandro. In fact, that is exactly what was happening.
Someone mentioned that USB Legacy Support was the reason the kernel saw
the USB mouse as PS/2, so I wondered if that might be screwing up the
regular PS/2 operation. I turned it off, switched back to the PS/2
mouse and everything is grand using exps2 as the protocol. Now I hope I
can get my money back on the USB mouse. :)
