Loaded and started SqueakNOS (other.vmx) with VMWare workstation 5.0.0  
build 13124 (current download).

Qwerty keyboard works fine (nil at: 1) brings up debugger, etc.

But the system does not do anything with the mouse :( It does not squeak,  
so to speak ;) cursor does not move (it is shown sometimes in the middle  
of the screen) and clicks don't do anything.

Any hints?
