what is you xf86 config for the input stuff ?
basically, just removing the "sendcoreevents" option should be enough.
but, if you use something like /dev/input/mice for your general (i.e. actually 
used for x) mouse, it may be neccesarry to give your mouse the real device in 
the input section (because tablets can alsi act as "mice" too, 
and /dev/input/mice combines _all_ such devices into one single device)
