T3400 Accupoint mouse on Linux+XF2.1

I made the question about the Accupoint device on Toshiba
T3400 one week ago.

Does anybody succeed to run XFree2.1 over Linux on
T3400(Mono) with the Accupoint as a mouse device?

Linux itself could be installed without any problem, but the
mouse device could not be opened by the X server.  It says
the resource is busy.  At the bootup time, the kernel
recognizes the PS/2 mouse device.  And the strange thing is
that even on the console screen the pointing device looks
alive.  If I operate the stick, then a cursor moves around
and grabs some characters on the screen but looks out of
control somehow.


'selection' written in /etc/rc.d/rc.local.  By removing that
statement and rebooting the system, the brand new pointing
device works fine as PS/2 device on XFree2.1 with Linux.  I'm
very happy about its light weight and its long-life battery

1. xfig and XF2.1 (bug in XF2.1)

My system:

486 DX2/50
8 Meg
VESA 5248 Cirrus Logic gfx.
{Linux 1.0 or 99.pl14} with XF2.1

My Problem:

2.1 is great except that when I run XFig, the top of the screen becomes
corrupted by, apparently, xfig writing data all over it !
Since I am not running as root, I assume that it is a bug in 2.1 rather than
xfig, as xfig shouldn't be able to get past the MMU.

I haven't seen anything like that since I had an Amiga :-)
I'm running 2.0 now and everything is fine (if a touch slower).
