No its a bog standard PS2 thing

it seems determined to put /dev/input/mice in there. There appears to be 
two lines of mouse configuration stuff in that file "Generic Mouse" and 
"Configured Mouse".

If I change them to read the same (correctly) it fails on

(II)XINPUT : Adding extended input device "Generic Mouse" (type: MOUSE)
(II)XINPUT : Adding extended input device "Standard Mouse" (type: MOUSE)

but if I remove either one I get it failing with:

Data incomplete in file /etc/X11/X86Config-4
         Undefined InputDevice "Generic Mouse" referenced by ServerLayout 
"Default Layout"

should there be 2 references to the mouse in there? If not what can I do 
about it?
