Also, the server flag:

Input devices have nothing to do with video devices. I think it's a conflict between your framebuffer console and xorg which causes this problem. Framebuffer consoles and Xorg videodrivers have always been a problem here, it's two direct hardware access things competing against eachother. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Well, it wasn't a problem before the last update to 1.5.3. I had the following uncommented in the device section:
# Option "UseFBDev" "true"
Now that I have commented it out, I still got the problem (of course after rebooting since I can't restart X). Moreover, just in case, I also removed atyfb (modprobe -r, and then startx), and the problem persists...
So I'm not sure if the problem is a frame buffer one.
OK, I'm done with trials, no luck... I filed a bug then, 12327...
