I don't know about Hurd either but under Linux, when a mouse is ps2, protocol
should be set to 'none' (gpmconfig)
and XFree86 (at least 3.3.6) should be set to 

Section "Pointer"
    Protocol    "PS/2"
    Device      "/dev/mouse"

Looks like a protocol mismatch. The same thing happened to me
in Linux when I choose the wrong protocol. I have never set up
X in the hurd, but here are some idéas:

1. Maybe ps/2 should be written ps2?

2. What protocol does /hurd/mouse output? Is the X server set
   to this protocol?

Maybe someone who knows can give better advice :/
