I'm sure that this is the most common mouse problem with games under
I remember when I was new to Linux I also had these mouse issues but I
quickly found out that I need to enable DGA.

Are you sure? DGA turned off (option "omit xfree86-dga" disables the dga
extension, thus removing this line enables dga) means that games can't
access the mouse directly. It needs to be enabled to have a proper mouse
in games.
