It works for me. I recently switched to a USB mouse (Logitech Trackman)
because the KVM switch that have "looses" my PS/2 mouse. The USB version
works fine with X, I don't need to switch out of X or restart X when I
switch machines.

Which version of X are you using? I have 4.1 which came with Redhat 4.2.
In the config file XFree86-4 I have

	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "USB Mice" "SendCoreEvents"

I think I read in the docs somewhere that using "SendCoreEvents" rather
than "CorePointer" means that X does not complain if the mouse dissapears
and then re-appears.
