It's still a problem in 8.04 my solution is the folowing:
in  /etc/X11/xorg.conf make sure you have the folowing section:

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
	Driver		"mouse"
	Option		"CorePointer"
	Option		"Device"	"/dev/ttyS0"
	Option		"Protocol"	"auto"

if /dev/ttyS0 does not work try ttyS1

You know for a operating system as serious as ubuntu a 4 year bug like
this doesn't realy look good
