Thanks to Manolis Kiagias's suggestion, I was able to get ctrl+alt+bksp
working in xorg again. However, I've noticed that just restarting hal
leaves me with no mouse or keyboard in X. I have to reboot the system to
get a mouse & keyboard in X. Is there a way to get hal to reload its
configuration withou rebooting? I've tried sending a HUP signal and I've
tried "rc.d/hal restart", but so far rebooting is the only thing that
works properly.
