This is a symptom of openning /dev/sysmouse multiple times. You have
Option "AllowEmptyInput" "off"
and there is a mouse section pointing to /dev/sysmouse in xorg.conf,
i.e., /dev/sysmouse is configured via your static configuration AND
- If you don't have to keep "AllowEmptyInput", then just remove the
option. The mouse section will be ignored and hald will do the right
- If you really have to keep "AllowEmptyInput" for some reason, then
you should remove mouse section from xorg.conf OR you may add
"AutoAddDevices" "off" in the server layout section.
I hope it helps.
