I've just updated udev and after a relogin to X no input was possible
with keyboard or mouse. I had to ssh into it and reboot the system.
Now it's working.

I'm not sure if the above mentioned 'udevadm info --convert-db' would
have prevent this. Shouldn't this be added to the post.update
script-let or make pacman to print at least a small note about this?

Sadly it's already moved. I don't think it's a good practice to move a
pkg to core in less than 9 hours even when you have 2 signoffs.
