Hi Paul.

HAL support is activated (in x11-servers/xorg-server) and X reports:
  (II) config/hal: Adding input device AT Keyboard
So it should use hald.

That's also true here (except the suspend, which doesn't work at all). I have
  Option "AllowEmptyInput" "off"
in my xorg.conf, which is identical.

I enabled the Synaptics support in psm(4). But this shouldn't
influence moused...
And I didn't test Xorg 7.4 on a FreeBSD 7.x, only on -CURRENT. :-/
But the issue itself remains the same: X shouldn't clear O_NONBLOCK...
