Normaly the CorePointer is the identifier for the device what you want to
have, strange. Hmm, perhaps was my suggestion too much unknowable from me so
i say it with the examples from my xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "WheelMouseUSB"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option      "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
    Option      "Device"   "/dev/input/mice"
    Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "false"
    Option      "Buttons" "5"
    Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Section "ServerLayout"
InputDevice "WheelMouseUSB" "CorePointer"

Have you make your tests only with your kernel or with the arch kernel too? I
don't know if this modprobe/rmmod usbmouse game could have some sideeffects.

But as is said before this be only thoughts from myself about it and no
suggestions to change your working solution.-)

See you, Attila
