Well, this is odd: moving the mousedev module from the
beginning of the /etc/modules file to the end fixed it. Why
would that be? Below are the contents of my /etc/modules.
Any ideas?

# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
#
# This file should contain the names of kernel modules that are
# to be loaded at boot time, one per line.  Comments begin with
# a "#", and everything on the line after them are ignored.

#psmouse
ide-cd
ide-detect
ide-disk
ide-generic
lp
nfs
nfsd
loop
dm-crypt
michael_mic
aes_i586
arc4
mousedev
