I think I had problems with debian gpm trying to get it to repeat ps/2 data, but I don't think they were the same symptoms you are encountering

Debian's gpm is a mess. See http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2003/debian-devel-200303/msg00761.html for more info. (I'm using some unofficial packages of 1.20.1, but they don't interact with the programs already in sid that use GPM for more than cut/paste)

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
If you don't know what it is, either ignore it or visit www.gnupg.org
My PGP key was last signed 6/10/2003 please download my key again if
it is more recent than your copy. If you use GPG, *please* talk to
me to sign it. The key is keyID E2B2CAD1 on pgp.mit.edu
