If you don't enable HAL and DBUS, you're using an X server compiled with
HAL and DBUS support and you haven't set AutoAddDevices to false you
won't get any input devices at all: no working mouse, no working

At least, this was my experience after an upgrade long ago. Quite
frustrating. I learned about the AutoAddDevices first and later rebuilt
my X server without HAL or DBUS support.
