turbo mouse driver fix...

I don't THINK it should break anything, since it's only being done after the
Kensington is being properly identified through its register 1 signature.
The problem is that the TurboMouse 5 takes up two adb id's.  When it first
comes up, they're typically both on 3, then one gets moved to 15.
Maybe I could have the driver check itself, if we're currently using id 15,
then the control id is definitely 3?  There really aren't any clean privisions
in the driver for dealing with mice/trackballs that use two id's.  I just
assume that if we already detected our signature, then assume the control
id is 3.  I know it's not clean, but unless me or someone else thinks of a 
better way, it works...  without mousemode or mousehack needed.
