Note that I've added a vmware_mouse input_server filter add-on which 
supports the io-port based VMWare communication. It also supports using 
the mouse through the VMWare VNC server for example and should work 
locally just as well. You could build it from the tree and put it to 
add-ons/input_server/filters and it should be picked up immediately. It 
would be nice to have it packaged with the vmw_tools package so it's 
easier to get. Note that from the current vmw_tools package you only 
want to install the filter as well, not the device.
