USB to PS/2 dongles

Has anybody tried one of these? I purchased one at the weekend and can
get the keyboard to function via kbdcontrol(8), but the mouse simply does
not work. Running moused manually, it seems to think the protocol is
mousesystems. The mouse is definitely present as a HID device (both the
PS/2 keyboard and PS/2 mouse attached to the dongle appear as one
device due to there being a USB controller and PIC inside the cable), but
moving it causes weird cursor screwups.

Any ideas? Eliminating legacy hardware considered a good thing.
