It's possible that Karl has added the vmw_mouse input_server add-on to his builds in an attempt to make mouse usage in vmware better (it's supposed detect when the mouse enters/leaves the vm and automatically grab/ungrab input). On older versions of VMWare, I find this add-on is really bad and actually makes the mouse usage worse. The advantage is produces is minimal in my opinion, and it's not natively compiled for Haiku anyway. You can manually remove it if you want.
