When I tried to login again a bit later, I have noticed that the mouse pointer did not move. My mouse MX&#8482; 600 previously worked also with the setting "MX310". (If I remember it correctly, it was autodetected as unknown device type 127 before my manual adjustment for the hardware "Cordless Desktop".)

Hm. For me this rather sounds like hardware failure than anything else.
Can you check the output of

hwinfo --mouse

? You might want to try a hard reset (including switching off power) as
well, before trying to reconfigure the mouse with 'sax2 -r'.

If you cannot get any mouse events printed by

evtest /dev/input/event* (you have to select the right one by trying)

then either your hardware is broken, or the kernel isn't detecting your
mouse any longer. If a different version of SuSE still works, create a
bug report.
