QEMU/KVM mouse not working?

This guy knows the answer:

For me, because I use a physical device for a disk and didn't want to give myself permission on the device:
$ sudo SDL_VIDEO_X11_DGAMOUSE=0 qemu-launcher
My mouse stopped working after I configured Xinerama and display rotation on X (I had alsoi upgraded to Ubuntu 9.04 but I didn't test my VM before fiddling with xorg.conf).

XOrg configuration for Samsung LA32A450C1

This guy nailed it. I had only just found the manual page for my Samsung 32" LCD TV and was still googling for a tool to find the modeline.

I've only added the option to turn off nvidia's logo to his X configuration. Too good:
