The crashing xorg-server is in testing and will never make it to extra:
we're against the input hotplugging as it breaks too many things,
including a dbus restart. This warning is for testing users who also
have xorg-server from testing installed.

This topic comes up once in a while:

Last year it was gnome-session and XFCE Terminal, this year it's Xorg,
with the difference that Xorg is in testing, while the offended
gnome-session package was on most extra users' system.
